Esha Singh is on the verge of becoming a household name in India as the teenage shooting sensation has been one of the prominent contributors to India's ever-growing medal tally in the ongoing Asian Games in Hangzhou, China.

Esha,18, has already guided India to four medals - a gold and a silver in the 25m pistol team event and 10m air pistol team event respectively whereas individually she has won two silver medals in 25m pistol and 10m air pistol events.

Who is Esha Singh?

Esha was born on January 1, 2005, in Hyderabad and belongs to a family that is fully invested in sports. She started training at the tender age of 9 and went on to become a state-level junior champion in just a year.

Esha soon became the senior national champion and that too the youngest ever to hold the position. Touted as a child prodigy, Esha continues to deliver as per the expectations and her growing stature promises even more.

Her incredible feat at the ongoing Asian Games is no surprise as she is battle-hardened and driven to achieve more success. The bigger the stage the better she performs and the same was on display when she defeated established names like Heena Sidhu and Manu Bhaker four years into her professional career to become the youngest champion in India.

2023 is turning out to be a dream year for the teenager. She claimed gold in the 10m air pistol mixed team event and also secured another gold in the 25m pistol team event at the World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan leading into the continental event in Hangzhou.

She has been in red-hot form since 2022 as she bagged three gold medals at the ISSF Junior World Championships (2022) in Cairo across the following events: 10m air pistol team,  25m pistol and 10m air pistol mixed team.
