Following the success of Manu Bhaker and Heena Sidhu in women's 10m air pistol final, it was 28-year-old Ravi Kumar from Meerut who added to India's medal tally by winning the bronze medal in men's 10m air rifle at the ongoing Commonwealth Games 2018 in Gold Coast, Australia.

Ravi shot a total of 224.1 to finish behind Abdullah Hel Baki from Bangladesh, who won the silver with a total score of 244.7, and Australia's Bane Sampson, who clinched the gold medal with a Commonwealth Games record score of 245.0.

Ravi had finished fourth at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Given the improvements Ravi has made in recent years and the form he was in prior to the Games, the result may be a little underwhelming, but he would still take it after missing out on a podium in the shoot-off four years ago.

The other Indian shooter in the 10m air rifle finals, Deepak Kumar finished sixth with 162.3, and Ravi, leading the field with 163.8, was in with a chance to win the gold medal at that stage.

Ravi entered the quadrennial extravaganza after winning a bronze at the ISSF World Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico.

His 10.3 in the final attempt was not enough for Ravi to keep him in contention for the gold and silver shoot-off, assuring him only of a bronze.

Earlier in the day, 16-year-old Manu Bhaker won the gold medal and Heena Sidhu clinched the silver in women's 10m air pistol final.

India have now won a total of 11 medals, including 6 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze.
