    Rahul Jakhar held his nerves to emerge victorious in the Mixed 25m Pistol SH1 as India opened their campaign at the WSPS World Cup on a resounding note by clinching three medals in Changwon, Korea.

    Jakhar, who qualified in the second spot with a score of 574-14x, held off a determined Kim Jungam in the shoot-off (3+3+2: 3+3+0) to win the P3 – Mixed 25m Pistol SH1 finals.

    Trailing Jungam throughout the final, the 36-year-old Indian kept his calm to equal the scores 20-all in the last series of the elimination round.

    “It was an amazing final. I am very happy to win the gold despite facing two malfunctions. It was a good experience before the all-important World Championships in November,” Jakhar told the Paralympic Committee of India.

    Pooja Agarwal claimed a bronze with 14 points.

    Paralympic champion Avani Lekhara won silver competing with a new wheelchair and new rifle.

    Represented by 14 shooters, India are one of the strongest teams at the Changwon 2022 World Cup.
