At 78, most pensioners are reliant on the glasses to even read a newspaper. But not Indian grandmother Chandro Tomar. With a £1,200 pistol in hand, and her sari draped over her long silver hair, it’s believed she’s the world’s oldest female professional sharpshooter.She has entered and won over 25 national championships across India as well as raising six children and 15 grandchildren.
Almost ten years ago Chandro took her granddaughter to a local firing range in Johri village, in Uttar Pradesh, India. Her biggest fan is her daughter Seema, who is also an international shooting star becoming the first Indian woman to win a medal at the Rifle and Pistol World Cup.
