In the mixed air pistol final, Manu Bhaker first paired with world number one Russian Artem Chernousov to get the better of the India’s Saurabh Chaudhary and Olympic champion Anna Korakaki 17-13.

It was then the turn of Divyansh Singh Panwar to team up with Croatian legend Snjezana Pejcic, to win the trophy in the 10m air rifle mixed team competition.
