Aishwary Singh Tomar Wins Silver in the Asian Games 2023, Breaking Swapnil’s Heart in the Men’s 50m Rifle 3-Positions

<p>Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar of India finished the Asian Games here on Friday with a silver medal in the men’s 50m rifle 3-positions, missing out on a gold.</p>
<p>China’s Du Linshu set an Asian Games record score of 460.6 on a day when India won five medals in the shooting competition—two gold and three silver—to deprive the 22-year-old Aishwary the top podium slot.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-211844″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-following-the-arrival-of-the-pakistan-cricket-team-in-india-the-pcb-chairman-spark.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com following the arrival of the pakistan cricket team in india the pcb chairman spark” width=”1318″ height=”877″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-following-the-arrival-of-the-pakistan-cricket-team-in-india-the-pcb-chairman-spark.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-following-the-arrival-of-the-pakistan-cricket-team-in-india-the-pcb-chairman-spark-150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1318px) 100vw, 1318px” title=”Aishwary Singh Tomar Wins Silver in the Asian Games 2023, Breaking Swapnil's Heart in the Men's 50m Rifle 3-Positions 6″></p>
<p>The home team’s Tain Jiaming finished third behind Aishwary with a score of 448.3, while the Indian got a final score of 459.7.</p>
<p>The largest loss, though, went to experienced Indian marksman Swapnil Kusale, who was aiming for a gold medal after dominating for most of the finals. though, a dismal shot of 7.6 caused the 28-year-old to fall dramatically from first to fifth in the “standing position.”</p>
<p>That practically eliminated him from medal contention and while he shot 10.5 and 10.1 in his final two rounds he could only achieve a fourth place finish.</p>
<p>Aishwary, however, will return home happy after winning today’s gold medals in the 10m air rifle and 50m rifle 3-positions teams, in addition to her solo bronze medal in the 10m air rifle and silver medal in the 50m rifle.</p>
<p>Indian shooters had their best-ever performance in the Asian Games as a result, winning 18 medals to far, including six gold.</p>
<p>The previous high was 14 medals earned in the Asian Games in Doha in 2006.</p>
