Heena Sidhu's husband Ronak Pandit, who is incidentally her coach as well, appeared the happiest man on earth after his wife clinched India's third gold medal in shooting at the ongoing Commonwealth Games, finishing on top in the women's 25m pistol event. With her medal-winning heroics, Sidhu also broke a Commonwealth Games record in Gold Coast on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old shot a final score of 38, two of the series being perfect fives, to claim the top honours ahead of Australian Elena Galiabovitch (35). The bronze medal went to Malaysia's Alia Azahari (26).

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.
