Jitu Rai said he believed had unflinching belief in his ability to stage a comeback and win the men’s 10m air pistol gold after a rather average qualifying outing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Monday. “Frankly speaking, my qualification score was not very good, but I had 100 percent faith in my ability that I can do it, because I have done well in the finals and won many medals in the past. My belief was unflinching,” Rai said. The World Championships silver medallist broke the CWG record (235.1) to claim the top prize by some distance in the final after being placed fourth in the qualification phase with 570.
