The Indian domination was complete as Saurabh Chaudhary and Divyansh Singh Panwar swept a hat-trick of gold medals in men’s air pistol and air rifle respectively on the third day of the InterShoot international shooting championship which concluded at The Hague, the Netherlands, on Saturday.

It was part of the Olympic preparation for the two young shooters, and they capitalised on the chance to compete in Europe, with resounding success.

Saurabh topped qualification with 584 and won the gold with a total of 245.1, beating Joao Costa of Portugal by 2.8 points.

Divyansh led an Indian 1-2-3 in air rifle, as he beat compatriot Pradeep Singh by 0.3 point for the gold. Pratik Borse finished third, while Manas Kumar Singh pipped qualification topper Deepak Kumar (630.8) for the fifth place. Five Indians in the final was truly dominant.

It was a particularly impressive outing for the 17-year-old Divyansh as he had earlier won two gold medals in Austria and one in Germany, in other world class competition.

Youth Olympics silver medallist Shahu Tushar Mane added to the Indian celebration by winning the junior men's air rifle gold, with a 0.1 point margin over Sanskar Havelia.
