Cairo [Egypt], October 26 (ANI): Indian shooting contingent finished the ISSF Rifle/Pistol World Championships 2022 held in Cairo, Egypt with a total of 34 medals, which include 12 golds, nine silvers and 13 bronze medals.
With this, they have finished second in the tally behind China, which bagged 58 medals including 27 golds.
Senior and Junior World Championships went ahead parallel in Cairo and the medal tally is consolidated one. India's junior shooters accounted for an impressive 25 out of 34 medals, as per Olympics.com. Junior pistol shooter Udhayveer Sidhu finished with two individual golds and a team bronze as a standout.
India's senior shooters help them bag two quotas for the 2024 Paris Olympics. There were 32 direct Olympic quota spots being awarded to top four finishers in each of the eight Olympic shooting events in the Egyptian capital.
The 18-year-old Rudrankksh Patil bagged the first quota after clinching a gold in men's 10 m air rifle, becoming only the sixth Indian shooting world champion after Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra, Tejaswini Sawant, Manavjit Singh Sandu, Om Prakash Mitherval and Ankur Mittal.
Swapnil Kusale could not win a medal in men's 50 m rifle 3 positions event and finished fourth, but still managed to secure India's second quota to next Olympics.
If Bhowneesh Mendiratta's men's trap quota won at Shotgun World Championship in Osikjek last month is taken into consideration, India has three quota spots for the 2024 Olympics and all of those in the shooting.
Quotas however do not belong to individual shooters as they are earned on behalf of national teams. Federations decide the shooters for the main event through trials.
