The 19-year-old has been in the limelight since the 2018 Asian Games when he became the youngest shooter from India to win a gold medal in 10m air pistol event. 

Later he went on win three more gold medals in 10m pistol individual, men’s team and the mixed team at the 2018 Asian Airgun Championship. 

In the very same year, he also won a gold medal at the Youth Olympics Games. 

Chaudhary’s career graph took off after the 2018 success. He made his mark at the 2019 ISSF World Cup, winning two gold medals in the individual category and four in the mixed team event. The ISSF achievement also confirmed his ticket to the Tokyo Olympics. 

Chaudhary’s recent performances saw the shooter again impressing at the Croatian leg of the 2021 ISSF World Cup that was held in Osijek last month. There he won a silver and a bronze in 10m air pistol mixed team and individual event respectively. 


The Government of India also conferred Chaudhary with the Arjuna Award in 2020.
