Indian shooters Apurvi Chandela – Ravi Kumar bagged a bronze medal in the 10m Air Rifle Mixed Team event on Sunday.

The Indian pair shot 429.9 points in the final, while Chinese Taipei bagged gold with a Games Record score of 494.1 points. China settled for silver with 492.5 points. Chandela, having won the first Games medal for the country, was satisfied with her performance. “Our best finish together was fourth at the World Cup and we have improved on that. My first Asian Games medal and my first medal for India here. I am really happy about that but my focus is on main event (10m rifle) tomorrow,” said Chandela.

On asking Kumar about the victory , he said, “This bronze has come only because of Apurvi. The final was a disappointment after a decent qualification. We didn’t get enough time to train together.”

The start is really good for India. We hope to see many more laurels coming.
