Pang wins gold, India seals three titles at WCup final

China’s Olympic-winning shooter Pang Wei stormed to the championship in the men’s 10-meter air pistol at the 2019 ISSF World Cup final in Putian, southeastern Fujian Province, yesterday, while Indian shooters won golds in the women’s 10m air pistol, and the men’s and women’s 10m air rifle.

The 33-year-old Pang, who captured world championships and Olympics titles in the air pistol in 2006 and 2008, respectively, led all the way in the 25-shot competition to top the podium with 243.7 points, two points ahead of Park Dae-hun of South Korea with 241.7 points. “This is my first World Cup final title in this discipline,” noted Pang, who has now collected air pistol golds in all three major world shooting competitions. Pang left the Chinese national team after the 2016 Rio Olympics, where he won bronze before deciding to come back to help and groom young teammates and fight for an Olympic title one more time. Elsewhere, Pang’s compatriot Wang Qian delivered a strong comeback performance after a big mistake at the beginning to take bronze in the women’s 10m pistol on 221.8 points, trailing behind gold medalist Manu Bhaker (244.7 points) of India and Serbia’s Zorana Arunovic (241.9). India also dominated the men’s and women’s 10m air rifle. Divyansh Panwar won with 250.1 points, while his countrywoman Elavenil Valarivan took the gold with 250.8 points.
