Deaflympics: Deshwal wins gold in men’s 10M Air Pistol

Abhinav Deshwal, a 15-year-old from Roorkee, gave India their second gold in shooting after he won the men’s 10M Air Pistol competition on Day five of the ongoing 24th Deaflympics 2021 in Caxias do Sul, Brazil.
The teenager was tied with silver-winning Ukrainian Oleksii Lazebnyk at 234.2 points apiece at the end of the 24-shot final, before winning in a shoot-off where he shot a 10.3 to the Ukranian’s 9.7. Chinese Taipei’s Hsu Ming-Jui won bronze.
Abhinav made the top eight final round after finishing second in the 60-shot qualification round with a score of 575 out of 600. He was tied on points here too with Kim Kihyeon, but the Korean topped on account of more inner 10s.
