Indian shooters produced a commanding performance on day 3 of the ongoing 13th South Asian Games as they swept all the medals on offer in the women’s 10m air rifle event on Tuesday. Teenage shooter Mehuli Ghosh bagged the Gold with a record-breaking show. Mehuli’s effort will, however, not be considered as a world record, as the South Asian Games’ results are not recognised by the international body (ISSF) for the purpose of records.
India also won the team gold in the 10m air rifle event.
The 19-year-old Mehuli clinched the gold with a score of 253.3 in the final, which is 0.4 more than the current world record of 252.9 which is in the name of another Indian, Apurvu Chandela.
Shriyanka Sadangi took the silver with a score of 250.8, while Shreya Agrawal (227.2) clinched the bronze in a 1-2-3 podium finish by the Indians at the Satdobato Shooting Range.
