Earlier, twenty-seven-year-old shooter Rahi Sarnobat came out with a brilliant performance as she won the gold medal in the 25m pistol competition after two rounds of shoot-off at the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia. Sarnobat became the first Indian woman to win an individual gold medal in shooting at Asian Games.

Sarnobat shot an Asian Games record score of 34 and although Thailand’s Naphaswan Yangpaiboon provided a tough challenge to the 27-year-old Indian shooter, she was able to clinch the title after two rounds of shoot-off. South Korean Minjung Kim won the bronze medal with a score of 29.

Sarnobat, a veteran of the sport, was in sublime form as she led from start till the end of 40 shots in the final.
