New Delhi, April 1 - Indian shooters will be hoping to grab more Olympic berths for the 2008 Beijing Games after the four World Cup shooting events this year, with the first beginning at Fort Benning in the US from Monday.

Six India shooters - Gagan Narang, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Manavjit Singh Sandhu, Avneet Kaur Sindhu, Abhinav Bindra and Anjali Bhagwat - have already booked their Olympic berths.

Other top shooters like Tejaswini Samant and Samresh Jung, who won five gold medals in the Commonwealth Games last year, will be looking to bag their seats for the Beijing Games through the World Cup.

The second World Cup will be held in Sydney from April 25 to May 3 followed by the third in Bangkok from May 3-11. The last World Cup this year will be held in Munich, May 28-June 4.

The World Cups are very important because the Olympic quotas will be up for grabs.
