Reigns supreme in 25-metre rapid fire pistol

Commonwealth Games gold medallist Anish Bhanwala overwhelmed Egor Ismakov of Russia 29-23 to clinch the gold in 25-metre rapid fire pistol in the Junior World Cup on Wednesday. Bhanwala had earlier topped qualification with 584.

The second string Indian team of Agneya Kaushik, Rajkanwar Sandhu and Udhayveer Sidhu won bronze, one point ahead of the main team. India stayed on top of the table with eight gold, eight silver and four bronze medals while China was in second place with six gold, four silver and five bronze.
