Up next: Sharp shooter

Human to Hero next meets Seema Tomar, a professional shooter from India.

Tomar followed her mother into the sport when a makeshift range was set up in her village.

The 31-year-old became the first Indian woman to win a World Cup medal in 2010 and earlier this year she won an individual and team gold at the Asian Shotgun Championships in the United Arab Emirates.
