The recently concluded World Cup at Rio is one of India’s finest performances. With five Gold, three Silver and two Bronze, India finished at the top. Thanks to some great performances in recent times, the Indian shooters now dominate the World rankings.
Elavenil Valarivan who won the Gold medal in the 10m rifle event now joins Apurvi Chandela and Anjum Moudgil at the top by conquering the third spot, just below Apurvi and Anjum. In the 10m Air Pistol Men’s event, Abhishek Verma and Saurabh Chaudary grab the number two and three positions. Whereas, in the Women’s 10m Air Pistol event, Yashaswini Singh Deswal moves to number four.
With a Gold medal, the veteran Sanjeev Rajput has moved to number eight in the 50m Rifle 3 Positions Men event.
Definitely, a great sight for India as we get closer to the Olympics.
