10th Asian Airgun Shooting Championships, India won five medals

India won five medals at the 10th Asian Airgun Shooting Championships in Japan today.

On the opening day of the competition at Wako City today, Ravi Kumar won an individual bronze in the men’s 10 metre air rifle while Arjun Babuta won individual silver in the corresponding junior men’s event.

India also bagged three team silver medals in each of the three air rifle events.

However, Olympic bronze-medallist Gagan Narang missed out on an individual podium finish.

Overall, India had seven individual finalists across the three events held today.

This will be the same range where the shooting competitions for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be hosted.
