Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala won a gold medal at the ISSF Junior World Championship in the 25m Standard Pistol category, creating a junior world record.

The previous record was held by Denis Koulakov, who shot a score of 574 in a competition held in Finland in 2002. Anish broke the record with a score of 576 in three rounds .

Anish is a promising shooter & also won a  bronze medal at the Junior Men’s 25m Rapid Fire Pistol event at the 27th Meeting of the Shooting Hopes which concluded in May. India finished with a highly commendable tally of 11 medals from the renowned international shooting competition in the Rifle and Pistol disciplines.

Despite Anish’s Gold with a World Record performance, Indian team had to settle for Silver in the team event of 25m Standard Pistol with the score of 1687. China won the Gold with 1694 points.

This is the fourth consecutive year for Suhl as the host of the Junior International Shooting Sport competition, having previously hosted the ISSF Junior Cup in 2014 and 2015, and the ISSF Junior World Cup in 2016. In 2016, the city in Thuringia welcomed the ISSF World Championship Running Target competition.

ISSF Junior World Championship Rifle/Pistol is the first competition of the year for Junior shooters & has seen about 500 shooters participate from 65 different countries, collecting almost 1000 starts.

India have sent out a 31-strong contingent for the event. India had lot of expectations from shooter Subhankar Pramanic to bag a medal on the first day as he had previously won a gold in the last Junior World Cup held in Gabala in the 50m Rifle Prone.

However, Subhankar failed to make it to the final round after an inconsistent start to the preliminary rounds. Fateh Singh Dhillon and Syed Araib Parvez were also other contenders, but they failed to make the final round as well.

In the 50m Rifle Prone Women Junior Individual Competition, Shirin Godara finished 21st in the preliminary round, followed by Prasiddhi Mahant in 41st place.

Many events are lined up for tomorrow & Indian shooters will look for more Glory.
