Indian women's team of Sift Kaur Samra, Ashi Chouksey, and Manini Kaushik clinched silver in the 50m Rifle 3 Positions team event at the Asian Games 2023 on Wednesday.

The troika shot a total of 1764 while the Chinese team collected 1773 to clinch the gold medal.

In the team events, winners are decided on the combined scores achieved by a country's shooters in the qualification round of the individual events.

Sift Kaur breaks national and Asian records

Sift Kaur Samra was the pick of the shooters as she finished second with a score of 594 and broke the national and Asian records at the event. She shot a perfect 200 in the prone position and 197 each in the standing position and the kneeling position.

Sift will feature in the individual final after finishing second in the qualification round.

Ashi Chouksey also made it to the individual final after she finished sixth with a score of 590 (199 in prone, 196 in standing, and 195 in kneeling). This is the second medal for Ashi as she won the 10m air rifle team silver on the first day of the Games with Mehuli Ghosh and Ramita Jindal.

Meanwhile, Manini Kaushik failed to make it to the final as she finished 18th with a score of 580 but made sure the team finished on the podium.

They had also clinched gold in the same event at the World University Games earlier in the month of July.

The individual final featuring Sift Kaur Samra and Ashi Chouksey is scheduled for 9:30 AM Indian Standard Time.
