World record holder, Sift Kaur Samra signs with Baseline Ventures


Baseline Ventures has signed a commercial representation agreement with shooter Sift Kaur Samra, the world record holder set to compete in the Paris Olympics.

Sift Kaur Samra’s outstanding performance at the Hangzhou Asian Games 50m Rifle 3 Positions event included a historic gold medal, marking India’s first victory in this category. She not only set a new world record but also contributed significantly to the team’s success, securing a silver medal in the Women’s 50m Rifle three positions team event at the same Games. Sift secured the top spot in the Asian Champions qualification round, but she opted not to compete in the finals due to her prior qualification.

Samra expressed her excitement about becoming a part of Baseline Ventures and joining a prestigious group of athletes. She stated, “I am delighted to collaborate with Baseline Ventures, a company known for their commitment to excellence. I look forward to working with them to pursue my professional athletic ambitions and objectives”.

Tuhin Mishra, the Managing Director and Co-founder of Baseline Ventures, extended a warm welcome to Sift and expressed his pleasure, stating, “We are thrilled to welcome Sift into our team. We believe that Sift’s exceptional talent and potential are in perfect harmony with our core values and objectives, and we eagerly anticipate assisting her in reaching new heights in both her athletic career and beyond.”

Determined to pursue her passion for shooting, Sift made the bold decision to leave her MBBS course at GGS Medical College in Faridkot. Her unwavering dedication and remarkable talent have consistently shone throughout her career. She boasts five Junior World Cup medals. In 2022, she secured a gold medal at the National Games and a debut bronze in the ISSF World Cup’s 50-meter rifle three positions event. At the 2023 ISSF World Championship in Baku, Sift Kaur Samra made history for India by clinching an Olympic quota for the Paris 2024 Games, finishing fifth in the women’s 50m rifle three positions event.
