Youth Olympics gold medallists shooters Manu Bhaker, Saurabh Chaudhary and weightlifter Jeremy Lalrinnunga will be among the cream of India’s young sporting talent competing at the Khelo India Youth Games, beginning here on Wednesday.

Manu also added the Youth Olympics gold to her kitty after the success of the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast and ISSF World Cup in Mexico last year. While Jeremy, who competed for Maharashtra in the first Khelo India Games, caught everyone’s attention by becoming the first Indian to win gold at the Youth Olympic Games, finishing on top in the 62kg class in Buenos Aires.
