Bangladesh shooter Abdullah Hel Baki’s training tour to Germany became uncertain after he failed to get his visa in the scheduled time.

The national shooter was expected to go to Germany by Saturday for a seven-day specialized training as a part of his Olympics preparation but he didn’t get a visa till Saturday. 

“I’m still waiting for the visa. If I don't have it by the 10th of July, I won't be able to go there because I've to start preparing for the Tokyo Olympics from the middle of the month,” Baki told The Daily Sun.

The Tokyo Olympics is scheduled to be held from July 23 to August 8.

Baki, who earned a wild card entry for the event, was expected to do training under the world’s top shooting coach Heinz Reinkemeier in German city Dortmund.
