India’s Elavenil Valarivan bagged the highest place within the girls’s 10m air rifle occasion to clinch her second gold medal on the Worldwide Capturing Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Rifle/Pistol competitors in Brazil.

Elavenil was perfection personified within the robust eight-woman ultimate subject, by no means scoring under 10.1 all through the 24 photographs. She completed with a rating of 252.2 to outgun France’s 20-year-old sensation Oceanne Muller, who gained silver with 251.9. China’s Zhang Jiale bagged the bronze.

Within the males’s 10m air rifle occasion, Sandeep Singh, India’s lone contender, shot 628.2 in qualification to complete within the 14th spot.

On Friday, Elavenil had teamed up with Sandeep within the 10m air rifle blended group occasion to complete fifth with a mixed rating of 629.1. The fourth and ultimate medal spherical spot went to Israel, who have been 0.5 factors forward of the Indian pair within the 42-team subject.

Whereas Elavenil shot 314.8, Sandeep shot 314.3 because the Indians narrowly missed a shot at bronze. Israel did win bronze finally, whereas Germany gained gold and the silver went to Hungary.

A 16-member Indian group was collaborating within the Rio World Cup in seven Olympic occasions.

Italy lead the medal standings with two gold whereas India are joint third with Armenia.
