#AsianGames: Shooter Heena Sidhu claims bronze; heartbreak for 16-year-old ManuLast updated on Aug 24, 2018, 01:24 pm
Indian shooter Heena Sidhu settled for a bronze medal in a topsy-turvy women's 10m air-rifle final of the Asian Games in Indonesia today.
Heena shot a near-perfect 10.8 with just three shooters left in the field but a 9.6 in the next attempt dashed her hopes of a better finish.
Meanwhile, CWG gold medalist Manu Bhaker was eliminated at the fifth place.
Heena wasn't entirely happy with the victory
Having made an incredible comeback after languishing at 13th and 17th places in the qualification stage, Heena didn't look content with the eventual third-place finish. Heena shot 219.3 in the final.
CWG gold medalist Manu was eliminated at the fifth place
There was more disappointment in store for 16-year-old Manu Bhaker as the Commonwealth Games gold-medalist was eliminated at fifth place with a score of 176.2.
For two straight events at the ongoing Games, Bhaker shot brilliantly in the qualifications and cracked in the final.
