New Delhi 08 Sep(Agencies)
Ankur Mittal claimed the men's double trap gold medal in the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championship in Changwon, South Korea, today for his career's biggest triumph and the Indian shooting team continued their dominance in the premier tournament.
The multiple World Cup medallist shot 140 out of 150 to go into a shoot-off for gold with China's Yiyang Yang and Slovakia's Hubert Andrzej. The 26-year-old overcame the Chinese 4-3 to emerge triumphant after the Slovakian had missed his second shoot-off clay target to settle for bronze.


Ankur also won the team bronze in the event along with compatriots Md. Asab and Shardul Vihaan, their tally of 409 points putting them behind China's 410 and the gold-winning team Italy's tally of 411.
In other events of the day, two Indian women missed out on the finals of their respective events by the narrowest of margins. Anjum Moudgil, who has already won a silver in 10 metres air rifle and a 2020 Olympic quota place for India, shot 1170 in the women's 50-metre rifle three positions qualifying round to finish ninth. The top eight make it to the finals.
Manu Bhaker, in the women's 25 metres pistol, tallied 584 in qualification to finish 10th.
In the trap mixed team junior event, Manisha Keer and Manavaditya Singh Rathore reached the six-team final with a qualification score of 139, which placed them second. They eventually finished fourth, with a score of 24 in the final.
