The Indian Women’s Skeet Team, consisting of Parninaaz Dhaliwal, Karttiki Shaktawat and Ganemat Sekhon tried their best to secure a Gold as well. However, it was not to be, and a 4-6 loss to Kazakhstan meant a silver medal winning second place finish for the Indians.

“A great day for skeet shooters as the Indian Men’s team of @angadvirbajwa, @khanmairajahmad & @GurjoatSiingh win 🥇 at the @ISSF_Shooting WC. The Women’s team of #ParinaazDhaliwal, #GanematSekhon and #KarttikiShaktawat won 🥈.

INDIA WON THREE ISSF WORLD CUP GOLDS IN A SINGLE DAY

The Gold won by the Men’s Skeet team was the third for India in a single day. Elavenil Valarivan and Divyansh Singh Panwar started India’s ISSF World Cup Gold tally in the day by winning the 10m Air Rifle Mixed Team event. Their score was a combined total of 16, ahead of the heavyweight Hungarian team of Istvan Peni and Eszter Denes who managed to score a combined total of 10.

Members of the Hungarian team have attracted controversy by touring around Delhi, including Qutub Minar, Humayun’s Tomb and India Gate. However, they countered by the argument that they were already vaccinated and their tour was a couple of days before the start of the tournament. Once the tournament started, they had not breached the bubble.

Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary went on to win India’s second ISSF World Cup Gold of the day by finishing atop the podium in the 10m Air Postol Mixed Team event.
