Rudrankksh Balasaheb Patil continued his good form in the ongoing selection trials in Thiruvananthapuram, winning the men’s 10m air rifle in the 2nd Trial after finishing second in the 1st Trial on Sunday.

In the process, he reversed the result of the 1st Trial which was won by Kiran Ankush Jadhav.

Rudrankksh shot 252.4 to beat Kiran by 1.8 point while Paarth Makhija finished third.
