The 17 year old Chaudhary scored 246.3 bettering his previous best of 245 points that was set in New Delhi World Cup Shooting in February this year. Chaudhury has already secured a berth for the Tokyo Olympics.
This is India’s second Gold in championship. Sunday Apurvi Chandela had won a gold in Women’s 10 Metres Air Rifle event. India already has five quota places in Rifle and Pistol competitions.
Apurvi, Anjum, Saurabh Chaudhary, Abhishek Verma and Divyansh Singh Panwar have secured quotas for the country so far. India’s other quota is in the men’s 10m air rifle and thus the shooters would be eligible for only one quota.
