India’s Singhraj Adhana wins bronze in the men’s 10m air pistol SH1 final at the Tokyo Paralympic Games 2020 on Tuesday. Singhraj clinched the medal with 216.8 points and with this, India’s medal tally stands at 8, which is the highest ever at any Paralympic Games.

This is second shooting medal for India at the ongoing Paralympic Games after Avani Lekhara’s historic gold in rifle shooting.

Adhana dropped out of contention with his poor 19th shot but managed to get back in the reckoning with his 20th attempt as China’s Xiaolong Lou got 8.6.

China dominated the finals with defending champion Chao Yang (237.9 — Paralympic record) and Huang Xing (237.5) winning the gold and silver medals respectively.
