After winning the gold medal in 25m air pistol event, Indian woman shooter Anisa Sayyed on Wednesday thanked her husband for helping her when the chips were down.
Anisa was going through a financial crisis, struggling to buy a pistol after her old gun was damaged due to a malfunction.
But when all seemed lost, her husband’s company (Tulip) came to her rescue and bought her a new pistol, which is still in the possession of the Customs.
“My husband’s company has helped me a lot. He was there when nobody was willing to help me. But I didn’t shoot with that today,” Anisa said.
