It has been announced by the National Rifle Association General Secretary Baljit Singh Sethi who is accompanying the team. He was satisfied with the facilities that are well maintained for Indian participants at the Olympic Village.

When asked, Sethi, also the General Secretary of the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) said that the shooting ranges impressed him.

"I am going to the range every day and they are really very good," he said adding that all the facilities at the village were "first class".

"It's first class. The food is very good with so much variety, transportation is good and we are entertained well by the hosts. There is no complaint at all," he said.

Sethi said the weather was hot in Beijing at the moment but it was a plus for the Indians, who are habituated to these kinds of temperature.

"It's hot here at this time of the year but it is good for us. Last time, when we came here it was freezing cold which had affected our performance," he added.

Indians are chiefly resting their hopes on shooters, boxers and the star tennis duo of Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi for Olympic glory.
