Sonam Maskar, a newcomer in the field, secured a silver medal for India in the women’s 10m air rifle event at the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup. Making her debut in the World Cup, Sonam achieved a score of 252.1 in the final round, trailing just 0.9 points behind Germany’s Anna Janssen at the Egypt International Olympic City Shooting range on Sunday.

In another notable performance, newcomer Simranpreet Kaur Brar achieved a commendable fifth place in the women’s 25m pistol event at the ISSF World Cup. This was her first appearance at this level in individual events. Brar had earlier excelled in the qualification round, securing the top spot with a score of 586, surpassing renowned competitors such as Germany’s reigning world champion Doreen Vennekamp and former Olympic champion Anna Korakaki of Greece.

However, the other two Indian participants fell short of making it to the top eight. Rhythm Sangwan finished in ninth place with a score of 582, while Manu Bhaker ended up in 14th place with a score of 580. At a certain point, the possibility of achieving a dual podium for India seemed plausible. However, Stankiewicz from Poland secured the bronze, surpassing Nancy, while Sonam was unable to close the gap with the seasoned Janssen.
