Abhinav Bindra was named Chairman of a five-member review committee to probe the shooters’ Rio Games debacle.
The mandate of the committee is to “examine and identify in a cold and ruthless manner” the causes behind shooting not securing any medals at the Rio Olympics.
The committee is also mandated to recommend concrete steps that NRAI must immediately undertake to ensure that this is not repeated in future Olympics.
India’s first and only individual Olympic gold-medallist Abhinav Bindra has retired from the sport after his fourth-place finish in Rio.
Other members of the committee include former tennis player Manisha Malhotra, who has also been appointed Convenor of the committee, NRAI Secretary Rajiv Bhatia and two journalists.
The order empowers the committee to go into a wide range of factors affecting the performance of the athletes.
Also, as per the order, the NRAI Review Committee has been asked to submit its report to the President within a maximum period of four weeks.
