Gold Coast: At her maiden Commonwealth Games, teenage shooting prodigy Manu Bhaker has underlined her immense potential by winning gold in the women’s 10m air pistol event at Gold Coast, Australia while the seasoned campaigner has taken silver.

Bhaker, a 16-year-old shooting sensation from Haryana, put in a tremendous performance on Sunday morning at the Belmont Shooting Centre as he held her own against older and more experienced shooters, firing a total of 240.9, a Commonwealth Games record.

Bhaker’s calm and composure belied her age as she shot 240.9 to break the Commonwealth Games record, finishing well ahead of her senior teammate Sidhu, who aggregated 234.

The bronze medal went to Australia’s Elena Galiabovitch who ended with 214.9.

Bhaker was the overwhelming favourite to win the event, having bagged gold medals at the 2018 ISSF World Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico and the following Junior World Cup in Sydney.

Sidhu too did well to win silver after she was on the verge of elimination at one stage. She had also won a silver at the Games in 2010.
