Medals galore for Indian shooters on Day 4 of the Asian Games 2023 in Hangzhou as the women's 25m pistol team of Manu Bhaker, Esha Singh and Rhythm Sangwan clinched the gold medal on Wednesday.

Manu, Esha and Rhythm shot a net total of 1759 and defeated the Chinese team of Zhao Nan, Feng Sixuan and Liu Rui to top the podium. China accumulated a total of 1756 points to win the silver as South Korea's Yang Jiin, Kim Lana and Sim Eunji shot 1742 to bag the bronze 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.

Olympian Manu Bhaker led the pack as she topped the qualification round with a score of 590 after two rounds of shooting. She shot 294 in the precision round on Day 1 and 296 in the rapid round.

Esha Singh finished fifth in the qualification and reached the final with a total score of 586. She shot 292 in precision and 294 in the rapid.

The third Indian shooter, Rhythm Sangwan shot a total of 583, with 290 in precision and 293 in the rapid. She finished seventh in the individual event. However, she will not be part of the final as only two shooters per national Olympic committee are allowed to compete in the individual medal round.

This is the second medal of the day in shooting for India as the trio of Sift Kaur Samra, Ashi Chouksey, and Manini Kaushik clinched the silver medal in the 50m rifle three-position event.

The final of the women's 25m pistol event is scheduled at 12:00 PM Indian Standard Time.
