#AsianGames: Rahi Sarnobat becomes first Indian woman to shoot gold
Rahi Sarnobat today became the first Indian woman shooter to win an Asian Games gold medal as she triumphed after prevailing in a double shoot-off in 25m pistol event. The 27-year-old shot a Games record score on her way to winning the yellow metal at Jakabaring Shooting Range. The final went into shoot-off after Rahi and Thailand's Naphaswan Yangpaiboon were tied on 34-points.
Both Rahi and Yangpaiboon shot four out of five shots in the first shoot-off, and then in the second shoot-off, the Indian prevailed over her opponent by missing one less. However, it turned out to be a disappointing outing for the fancied Manu Bhaker, as the 16-year-old finished sixth after entering the final with a qualification Games record score of 593.
