Punjab?s Rajveer wins triple gold in skeet

Patiala, November 28

Punjab’s Rajveer Singh Gill claimed three gold medals, winning the skeet men, skeet junior and junior skeet team titles at the ongoing 64th Shooting Nationals for shotgun here today.

Rajveer qualified for the final in the last spot after scoring 119 at the New Moti Bagh Gun Club here. He was in his element in the 60-shot final though, hitting 56 targets to leave Rajasthan’s Anantjeet Singh Naruka in silver position with 52 hits. The seasoned Mairaj Ahmed Khan, a two-time Olympian, won the bronze with a score of 45.

In Bhopal, where the rifle Nationals are taking place, Indian Navy’s Kiran Ankush Jadhav upstaged India No. 1 Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar among others to claim gold in the men’s 50m rifle 3 positions competition. Tomar did make up for the disappointment, however, by claiming the junior men’s 3P title later in the day.

Jadhav came out on top after logging 455.7. Services’ Niraj Kumar took silver with an effort of 455.3. Aishwary bagged the bronze with 444.4 ahead of Olympians Chain Singh and Sanjeev Rajput.

In the pistol Nationals in New Delhi, Rajasthan’s Bhavesh Shekhawat sealed his first title by winning the men’s 25m rapid fire pistol gold event as Olympics silver medallist Vijay Kumar finished fourth. Gurpreet Singh took silver. Haryana’s Anish Bhanwala finished third in the event before claiming gold in the junior competition. — PTI
