This was Sidhu's second medal at the ongoing Games after having claimed a silver in the 10m air pistol event behind 16-year-old compatriot Manu Bhaker. Incidentally, this is her first major medal in the 25m pistol event with most of her other podium finishes being in 10m air pistol.

"I am exhausted, those are my thoughts on today's performance," Sidhu quipped while speaking to PTI after her gold.
