It was India’s fourth tournament and the second gold medal in the youth ISSF World Cup, which helped them hold onto the top spot in the rankings.

At the end, Peckler had a good challenge, but Aishwari was always ahead and in control and brought out the big guys when it was important to finish like a pro. 토토사이트
India missed another medal as Manu Barker finished fourth in the women’s 25 m pistol after shooting extremely well to advance to the medal round. Her first task in the morning was to qualify for the ranking event and she shot 293 steady rapid fire rounds to finish seventh with 581 overall efforts.
She then missed just two shots in four consecutive five-shot games, topping the women’s four-man ranking rounds. Her 18 points were four points better than Techshu, a Singaporean who eventually won the gold medal after her.
The law of averages probably caught up with Manu in the medal round. This is because she was eliminated in fourth place with just nine hits to her name after her fourth five-shot game.
Anjum Moodgil finished sixth in the women’s 3P rankings with 586 points in the preliminary round. The final is on Sunday. Currently, India leads the medal tally with four gold, four silver and one bronze.
