Palembang:
Rahi Sarnobat on Wednesday became the first Indian woman shooter to win an Asian Games gold medal as she triumphed after prevailing in a double shoot-off in the 25m pistol event here.

The 27-year-old shot a games record score on her way to wining the yellow metal at the Jakabaring Shooting Range.

The final went into shoot-off after Rahi and Naphaswan Yangpaiboon of Thailand 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.
