ISSF WC Final: Manu, Elavenil, Divyansh treat India to triple gold

Manu Bhaker continued her gold rush this year by winning yet another gold in the women’s 10m air pistol event, this time at the ISSF World Cup Final in Putian, China on Thursday. Bhaker shot a score of 244.7 in the final — in the process setting a new junior world record in the event.

Fellow prodigy Elavenil Valarivan also capped an impressive 2019 by winning gold in the women’s 10m air rifle event after shooting 250.8 in the final to finish ahead of Chinese Taipei’s Lin Ying-Shin and Romania’s Laura-Georgeta Coman.

Divyansh Singh Panwar also won gold in the men’s 10m air rifle event after shooting a score of 250.1 in the final.

He had earlier secured a quota for the Tokyo Olympics after winning a silver medal in the event at the Beijing World Cup earlier this year in April.

This is 17-year-old Panwar’s maiden World Cup Final win in just his first appearance at the tournament.
