Sift Kaur Samra, an Asian Games gold medalist, was one of the standout performers for India. She clinched the bronze medal in the women’s 50m rifle 3 positions shooting event. Despite a challenging start, Samra displayed remarkable resilience. She was seventh after the kneeling round but improved her rank to fifth after scoring 309.8 in the prone round. A strong performance in the standing section helped her climb up the leaderboard and secure the third spot on the podium.

Samra’s final score was 452.9, narrowly missing the silver by 0.1 point to Han Jiayu of China. The gold medal was won by Seonaid Mcintosh of Britain with a score of 466.7.

Earlier in the competition, Sarabjot Singh had won the gold medal in the men’s 10m air pistol event. With one gold and a bronze, India finished third on the medals table along with France.

Aishwary Pratap Singh, India’s most successful shooter at the Asian Games last year, also participated in the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions final. He finished eighth with a score of 408.9.
