Two other Indian pairs – Sanjeev Rajput and Anjum Moudgil and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar and Ashi Chouksey – narrowly missed the medal rounds after finishing fifth and sixth respectively in the mixed team event of the 50m rifle 3 positions.
On the ninth day of the competition, Vijayveer Sidhu and Simranpreet Kaur Brar also finished sixth in the mixed team 25m rifle.
India currently leads the medals at the Changwon World Cup with 14 medals – 5 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze.
