ISSF World Cup: India’s Akhil Sheoran wins gold medal in men’s 50 metre rifle

India’s Akhil Sheoran has clinched the gold medal in men’s 50 metre rifle 3 position at the ISSF World Cup in Mexico.

In the event being held at Guadalajara, Sheoran shot 455.6 in the final on Sunday to pip Austria’s Bernhard Pickl to second place with 452.

Sheoran’s gold was India’s fourth of the competition and makes it almost certain that the country would finish on top of the medals tally for the first time in an ISSF World Cup.

Sheoran also became the fourth young Indian shooter to win a medal on ISSF World Cup debut.

This was after the likes of Shahzar Rizvi, Manu Bhaker, Mehuli Ghosh and Anjum Moudgil had put India on top of the medal standings with their performances over the last week.

Meanwhile, Manu Bhaker has qualified in fourth place for the women’s 25 metre Pistol Final, shooting a score of 581.
