On Sunday, the morning session was dominated by India’s Pistol and Rifle shooters as they won two Gold and a silver medal.

Earlier, she had also shot a career-best score of 117 out of 125 in qualifying, to make it to the six-women final.

Everyone, including NRAI president Raninder Singh, present at the Shotgun Range was full of joy as they also became a part of history.
