India's chief shooting coach Sunny Thomas asked his shooters to shoot with pressure and not against it if they want to win a medal at the 2012 London Games.

Thomas, who is here for his fifth Olympics, said the shooters are trained to handle pressure and they won’t get overawed by the situation. “You have to shoot with the pressure, you don’t have to fight against it. The shooters are trained for this entire situation,” said Thomas.

Thomas feels Indian shooters are hogging the limelight because of their consistent performance. “I will not agree with the view that it is a sudden development, because if you see, we have been performing well for last so many years, but yes we were not noticed or acknowledged properly.”
