More about the Indian contingent in CWG 2022

Shooting and archery are not a part of the event this time, which might result in a reduced tally of medals for India. At the same time, the Tokyo Olympic javelin champion Neeraj Chopra announced his withdrawal from CWG 2022 due to groin injury. Chopra scripted history by earning his maiden World Championships medal last week.
