Croatia’s Petar Gorsa won the gold medal with 457.5, while Hyeonjun Kim of Korea bagged the bronze after he shot 445.5. Rajput finished seventh in the qualification with a score of 1167 in kneeling, prone and standing position, while Olympic bronze medallist Gagan Narang was 23rd with 1161. Chain Singh was placed 32nd with a total of 1159. This is his 3rd World Cup medal, having won gold in the same event in 2011 and silver in 10-metre Air Rifle in 2010.
Ace shooter Sanjeev Rajput clinched the silver medal for India in men’s 50-metre rifle 3 position event of the ISSF World Cup. Rajput shot 456.9 to win the silver medal in the last World Cup before the Rio Olympic Games.
So let’s do:
1. Expand the term ISSF?
2. Name the Indian shooter, who won the silver in ISSF World Cup?
