Shreyasi Singh shines as India wins another Gold at the Commonwealth Games.

XtraTime Web Desk: India won another gold at the Commonwealth Games 2018, this gold takes up India’s Medal tally to 24 medals consisting of 12 Golds, 4 Silvers and 8 Bronzes.

Shreyasi Singh held her nerve and produced some excellent shooting to win the women’s double trap gold medal. Shreyasi shot 96 in the finals and beat Australia’s Emma Cox 2 shots to 1 in the shoot-off at Belmont Shooting Centre. The other Indian contender in the field, Varsha Varman finished fourth with 86.

The bronze medal went to Scotland’s Linda Pearson, who shot 87 to finish a point ahead of Varsha, who held the third place for a while.

The 26-year-old Shreyasi, thus, improved on her silver medal-winning effort at the Glasgow Games four years ago.

Shreyasi was on the second position while Varsha was on the third position after three rounds.

Recently, she won a silver medal in the double trap event at the 2017 Commonwealth Shooting Championships.

Shreyasi, whose grandfather and father served in the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) as its president, represented the country in two events at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games but failed to win a single medal.

Another medal ensured that India rose up to the Third position surpassing the then third placed New Zeland.
