“It is a big challenge to her considering her tiny hands and supple shoulders. She hit 15 shots at 9 and twice she hit 10 points. This signifies the concentration level of the young kid,” said Sharan Kumar, an official from the Archery Association of India.

It is not the first time this little girl Shivani made a new record. She had become the youngest Indian ever to have scored more than 200 points at a trial event when she was just three years old

She trains at The Volga Archery Academy in Vijayawada and preparing to take part in the 2024 Olympics.


Little Archer’s father Cherukuri Satyanarayana said “Shivani will be 13 when the 2024 Olympics will be held. Our target is to prepare her for the Olympics and we need a top class coach to teach her the advanced techniques. I want Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu to take note of the request and do the needful.”
