Shooters win seven medals at Mexico World Cup

It was raining medals in Mexico this week as shooters supported by OGQ won a total of seven medals for India at the ISSF Shooting World Cup held at Guadalajara, Mexico from 1st - 12th March 2018. The most spectacular performance came from 16-year-old Manu Bhaker who won two Gold medals, in 10m Air Pistol Women and 10m Air Pistol Mixed Team each. This was Manu's debut World Cup appearance and she scripted history as she became the youngest Indian shooter to win a World Cup medal. Another stellar performer was 17-year-old Mehuli Ghosh who won two Bronze medals in her debut World Cup appearance. Mehuli won the Bronze in 10m Air Rifle Women and 10m Air Rifle Mixed team event partnering Deepak Kumar who is also supported by OGQ. While Shahzar Rizvi shot a world record score of 242.3 in the finals to clinch the Gold medal in 10m Air Pistol Men in his debut World Cup appearance, Rio Olympic finalist Jitu Rai stormed back on the podium winning the Bronze medal in the same event. Air force shooter Ravi Kumar, seized his first ever World Cup medal winning the bronze in 10m Air Rifle Men. 22 year-old Akhil Sheoran, competing in his second World Cup, won the 4th Gold medal for India as he emerged the winner in 50m Rifle 3 positions event. OGQ has been supporting Akhil for the last six years, infact, Akhil was one of the first athletes to be a part of the OGQ Junior Scholarship Program at the age of 16. OGQ has been supporting all these shooters with equipment, sports science and medical support. This is the first time ever that India has topped the medal tally at a Shooting World Cup, winning a total of nine medals.
