Long-serving national shooting coach Sunny Thomas has offered his resignation to the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) after 19 years at the helm during which India won four Olympic medals in the sport.

Thomas will be involved with the sport in some capacity, he said.

“I have tendered my resignation. It's been 19 years and now I thought of moving on,” Thomas said. “But I am not cutting off my ties with shooting,” the jovial Keralite added.
