India’s Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary bagged the gold medal in the 10m Air Pistol mixed team event at the ongoing ISSF Shooting World Cup in New Delhi on Monday.
Bhaker and Chaudhary beat the Iranian team of Golnoush Sebghatollahi and Javad Foroughi in the gold medal match. The Indian duo had a total of 16 points while Iran managed 12.
India also bagged the bronze medal thanks to Yashaswini Singh Deswal and Abhishek Verma, who beat Turkey’s Sevval Ilayda Tarhan and Ismail Keles 17-13.
Iran’s Foroughi had won the gold medal in the individual 10m Air Pistol and this must have come as sweet revenge for Chaudhary.
Bhaker, too, had won the silver medal in the individual event. She was pipped to the gold medal by Deswal.
