first_img(REOPENS DEL 53) (REOPENS DEL 53) Commonwealth Games medallist in Mandeep Jangra (69kg) survived a closely-fought contest against Afghanistans Rahemi Alla Dad to win 3-0. At the shooting range in Guwahati, Indian shooters made yet another clean sweep on the final day to sign off with a staggering 25 out of 26 gold medals on offer. Rio Olympics bound Gurpreet Singh shot gold in mens individual 25m rapid fire pistol with a total of 28 hits on target, while Sweta Singh grabbed another yellow metal in womens individual 10m air pistol event with a total score of 194.4 even though she was shooting with her spare gun at the Kahilipara Shooting Range here. Another Olympics quota holder Heena Sidhu had to be content with the silver in the womens 10m air pistol event with a total score of 192.5, while 18-year-old Chandigarh shooter Yashaswini Singh Deswal took the bronze. India also took a gold each in both the team events to sweep aide any competition from other countries in the discipline. India gave away just one gold — to Bangladesh — in the discipline. The home shooters ended the competition with 25 gold, 10 silver and 10 bronze. Bangladesh are at a distant second with one gold, three silver and three bronze. Gurpreet made up for his disappointing sixth-place finish in the 10m air pistol event on Saturday by winning the gold in 25m rapid fire pistol event today. Bashir Ghulam Mustafa of Pakistan took the silver with 24 hits on target while another Indian Vijay Kumar, who had won a silver in this event in 2012 London Olympics, bagged the bronze. In the womens 10m air pistol finals, there was tough competition among the three Indians, exchanging leads among three of them. But towards the end, Sweta had established good lead over her two Indian rivals after young Deswal had a horrendous series of two shots of 8.3 and 7,7 which cost her dear. Sidhu was not at her best in the finals and she had just five shots of 10 plus scores out of 20 attempts, besides having poor shots of 8.8 each. For Sweta, this was the worst ever performance despite winning the gold as she had to shoot with a spare gun. PTI PDS PM PMadvertisementlast_img read more
