Rahi Sarnobat won gold and Anisa Sayyed silver to take India's medal haul from shooting on Saturday to five after clinching the top two spots in the women's 25-metre pistol event of the Commonwealth Games at the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre in Glasgow.

Rahi and Anisa ensured that another gold and silver were added to India's tally after finishing in the top-2 of the semi-finals. The bronze was clinched by Australia's Lalita Yauhleuskaya, who defeated Malaysia's Alia Azahari in the bronze medal playoff.

Earlier on Saturday, Prakash Nanjappa won the men's 10m air pistol gold, while Apurvi Chandela and Ayonika Paul brought in a gold and silver, respectively, from the women's 10m air rifle event to make sure India won five medals Saturday, all from the same discipline.
In the final, Rahi, who hails from Kolhapur, proved too good for Anisa by shooting a total of eight points to her 33-year-old opponent's mere two.

The 23-year-old Rahi had also topped in the semi-finals with 16 points, while Anisa finished second with 14 to enter the summit clash.
