Ganemat Sekhon returned the joint third-best score in the women’s skeet event at the third International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Shotgun Stage 2 in Changwon, South Korea. The shooter from Chandigarh shot a creditable 72 out of 75 on Day 1 to lie seventh in a 56-strong field. Two more rounds of 25 shots each are scheduled for Day 2 before the top-six make it to the final round, also scheduled for Day 2 on Friday. Besides a coveted ISSF World Cup medal, there are also two Tokyo 2020 Olympics quota places to be won in the event.

Two other Indians in the fray — Maheshwari Chauhan with 66 and Rashmmi Rathore with 62 — were lying at the 35th and 49th positions, respectively. Reigning Olympics champion Diana Bacosi of Italy was leading the field with a score of 74 out of 75. Besides Ganemat, there were three women on 72, including American legend Kimberly Rhode.
