OFFICIALS for the 2022 Commonwealth Games are considering a proposal to stage shooting and archery in India, even though the games are being hosted in Birmingham.
The proposal was described yesterday as “innovative” by Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) chief executive David Grevemberg and will be reviewed over January and February “with the ambition of strengthening Commonwealth sport.”
Commonwealth Games India put forward the idea with the support of the country’s government, along with the governing bodies of shooting and archery.
India, which traditionally has a good record in shooting, threatened to boycott the games after the sport was excluded from the programme, along with archery.
But India confirmed last month its intention to participate in the 2022 games following talks with CGF officials, and expressed an ambition to host the event in the future.
It was also reported yesterday that the shooting and archery could take place four months before the games begin in July 2022.
