Mairaj Ahmad KHAN

Born on November 2, 1975, in Khurja, Bulandshahar, a town in northern Uttar Pradesh, Mairaj Ahmad Khan became the first Indian skeet shooter to qualify for the Olympics at Rio 2016 at the age of 40. At Tokyo 2020, the Indian shooter will be the oldest among the Indian contingent.

Mairaj Ahmad Khan was born into an affluent shooting family. His father, brother and uncles were state-level trap shooters. But a young Mairaj was never drawn to shooting and instead dreamt of playing for the Indian cricket team. 

Shooting remained a weekend hobby as he focused on his cricket career. An aggressive batsman, Mairaj Ahmad Khan made his college team and played alongside former Indian international Virender Sehwag for the Jamia Millia Islamia University in New Delhi. 

Mairaj Ahmad Khan took part in the Vizzy Trophy -- an annual inter-zonal university tournament -- and the CK Nayudu Trophy, an all-India Under-22 cricket competition. His cricket career didn’t go beyond it.

Consequently, Mairaj took up skeet shooting at 24 and enjoyed a steady rise through the ranks with wins at the national stage. 

Mairaj Ahmad Khan was a member of the Indian skeet team that won the gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi and the 2011 Asian Shotgun Championship in Kuala Lumpur. 

The Indian shooter was hoping to qualify for the Olympics at London 2012 but a poaching allegation distracted him. Mairaj Ahmad Khan, thus, fell short of securing a quota place at the World Cup qualification in Qatar early in 2012.

Mairaj Ahmad Khan didn’t let the disappointment linger for long. The Indian sealed the Rio 2016 quota place at the 2015 World Championship in Lonato, Italy. But at the Games, Mairaj fell short of making the medal round after a loss in the shoot-off.

Mairaj Ahmad Khan qualified for Tokyo 2020 with a silver medal finish at the 2019 Asian Championships in Qatar and will be hoping for a better show in Japan this time.
