Shooting World Cup: After Heena Sidhu-Jeetu Rai win gold, Ankur Mittal laps up a silver in Men's double trap

With news pouring in we learn that Ankur Mittal has won a silver medal at the ongoing shooting World Cup in India.

With news pouring in we learn that Ankur Mittal has won a silver medal at the ongoing shooting World Cup in India. Ace shooter Heena Sidhu and Jeetu Rai win gold at their favoured 10m Air Pistol at the ISSF World Cup event. Apparently, she is also India’s first pistol shooter to rank world no.1. So a lot of joy for the Sidhu household. At the Olympics last year as well, a lot of hopes were pinned on the shooting duo but they failed to notch up the results. It seems 2017 is going to be a historic one for the Indian shooters.

Heena is aged 27, so that means she has a long career ahead. Hailing from Ludhiana, she has come off all the obstacles that came in her way of success.

The both of them were participating in the mixed doubles event where cooperation and coordination hold the key. Jitu Rai on the other hand, is a pro and has been in the shooting circuit for quite some time now. What makes this victory even more special is the fact that they shot to gold in their own home turf and in front of their fans. Must have been the best feeling ever for the winning duo.

India has had big famed shooters in the past like Abhinav Bindra, who won gold and Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore apart from having Gagan Narang and Co. as well in the mix. But to win a gold in a world event is a different kettle of fish altogether. Earlier in the event, Pooja Ghatkar won the bronze medal, so it is hunky dory times at the medals tally for the Indian shooters.
