The ISSF World Cup Shotgun 2022, which begins on Tuesday, in Lima, Peru, will include eight Indian shooters, along with London Olympian Shagun Chaudhary. This is the year's second shotgun World Cup, following the one conducted Nicosia, Cyprus, where India had won a silver medal.

However, none of the competitors from Nicosia, including Olympian Mairaj Ahmad Khan, will compete in Lima. A shooter can compete in a maximum of two of the four World Cups in a season, provided they achieve the Minimum Travel Score (MTS) in other events, according to the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI).

In the men's trap, India will be represented by Shapath Bharadwaj, Manavaditya Singh Rathore, son of Olympic silver medalist Rajyavardhan Rathore, and Darius Chenai. Meanwhile, in the women's trap event, Shagun Chowdhary and Rajeshwari Kumari will compete.

Munek Battula, Amrinder Cheema, and Parampal Singh Guron make up the men's skeet squad. In the women's skeet, there is no Indian presence. The Las Palmas Shooting Range in Lima will host the nine-day tournament.
