Angad Vir Singh Bajwa shoots a skeet gold history



Angad Vir Singh Bajwa was shot in a world-renowned gold medal in the final skeet of the 8th Asian Shotgun Championship, which became India's first shooter to win a continental or global event.

Angad triggered a perfect 60 out of 60 in the final round to claim first place in front of China's Di Jin shot at 58. UA Saeed Al Maktoum won bronze with a score of 46.

Angad shot 121 of 125 in qualification to tie in second with three other shooters. Di Jin shot 124 at the top of the qualifying round. Angad then went on a shot to fix small seats and shot 15 goals in Al Maktoum 16 to rank third.

Local shooter Saad Habib lost his sixth goal to end the fourth while Kuwait's third world champion and Olympic champion of the Rio, Abdullah Alrashidi, took fifth place with 120 points. Jiang Yang of China took the sixth and final point with 119 points and surpassed a four-person shoot-off.

In the finals, Angad shot like a man who dominated and handed over the promise he has presented for years, with a perfect 60 of 60 throwing a world-class field.

"This is the best Diwali gift to the nation and we are all so happy about Angad as he eventually realized his real potential and all his hard work over the years begins to bear fruit in the future," said Raninder Singh, President of National Association of the Blind of India (NRAI).

Gurjoat Khangura, the other Indian on the strike, shot 117 in the qualification to finish the 13th.

Earlier, the 10-meter mixed tournament of India mixed teams Elavenil Valarivan and Hriday Hazarika hit the gold with a junior world record score. Mehuli Ghosh and Arjun Babuta won the bronze at the same event. Elavenil and Hriday qualified earlier in the final of the five teams in third place with a total score of 835.8. Mehuli and Arjun were recorded 833.5 to qualify in fourth place.

In the final of the 45th shot, the pair who won the gold medal made a strong start and led from the start, except the second after 20 shots, to the silver-winning Chinese couple Shi Mengyao and Wang Yuefeng. Eventually they finished with a score of 502.1, which is a world and Asian basketball record at the event. The Chinese couple finished with 500.9.

The pair Mehuli and Arjun were third throughout the finish and finished with a score of 436.9 to claim the bronze. The young men had started their campaign on Monday with three silver and bronze medals, with Elavenil finishing third in the lower racing individual women's rifle and silver in the group. Mehuli and Arjun also won silver at the team competition.

India has so far won seven medals from the competition with two gold, three silver and two bronze.
