National News From States Sports

NEW DELHI: Indian shooters continued their good show at the 2018 Asiad with Heena Sidhu winning a bronze in the 10M air pistol event with a score of 219 for the country’s ninth medal in the sport and 23rd overall in the Games.

It was Heena’s third medal in the quadrennial extravaganza and the first in an individual event. The 28-year old shooter had a poor start with getting scoring just 96.7 in the first stage and finishing in the 7th position. She scored 9.8 in her first shot in the second stage and remained in the 7th position with 117.1. Heena did not look content with the eventual third-place finish as she managed to reduce the gap to a mere 0.1 between her and the gold medal.

Disappointment in store for 16-year-old Manu Bhaker as the Commonwealth Games gold-medallist was eliminated at fifth place with a score of 176.2.
