Olympian Anjum Moudgil continued to excel as she won the bronze medal in the 50-metre rifle 3-position event in the shooting World Cup in Changwon, South Korea, on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Anjum, who had won silver medal in the World Championship in air rifle, won her second successive medal in the World Cup series, following the silver in the Baku World Cup. It was the third World Cup individual medal in the 3-position event for Anjum, who qualified in the sixth place with 586, and missed the chance to fight for gold by 0.5 point.

In the men’s rifle 3-position team event, Czech Republic beat India to the gold 16-12. The trio of Chain Singh, Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar and Sanjeev Rajput had topped the second stage, three points above the Czech, but the latter had the last laugh.

In men’s skeet, Olympian Mairaj Ahmad Khan shot 72, following rounds of 24, 23 and 25 to be in the 11th place. Erik Pittini of Italy and Abdullah Alrashidi of Kuwait led with 74. Two more rounds will be shot on Monday, followed by the medal rounds.

India stayed on top of the medals table with four gold, five silver and two bronze medals, among 20 countries that have managed to make the list. Host South Korea was in the second place with three gold, a silver and a bronze. Serbia was third with its three gold medals.
