- Initially, Adarsh had a keen interest in playing Cricket and Badminton. Due to his childhood ailments, he couldn’t pursue a physically tough sport and, therefore, he chose shooting. In an interview, Adarsh discussed his difficult journey and how his elder sister inspired him to pursue shooting. He said,
It’s been a tough journey for me since my birth. The lower back injury never allowed me to pursue my passion in cricket or badminton. As I started growing older, I found out that I couldn’t play physically tough sports. So I chose shooting. It helped that my elder sister Riya Singh – also a national-level shooter was pursuing shooting and she introduced me to the sport. I honed my skills at the Faridabad Model School shooting range and soon I developed a deep interest.” The Times of India
