Anjum Moudgil and Divyansh Singh Panwar won a gold medal in the 10m air mixed team event.

Indian shooters continued on their brilliant run in the ongoing Shooting World Cup in Munich, Germany. 

Anjum Moudgil and Divyansh Singh Panwar secured a fourth gold medal for India in the tournament, as they clinched the top spot in the podium in 10m air rifle mixed team event. 

Apurvi Chandela and Deepak Kumar, who were participating in the same event, won the silver medal - thus completing a formidable top-two finish for India.

Moudgil and Panwar have now won two successive gold medals in the last two World Cups - the previous one being in April in the Beijing edition. The pair shot a total of 631.9, while Chandela and Kumar, who stood second, scored 630.2.

However, the gold medal will not earn Moudgil and Panwar a place in the Tokyo Olympics, as the event doesn't offer Olympic quota.

Earlier, Saurabh Chaudhary won the gold medal in the 10 metre Air Pistol category at the World Cup, while Rahi Sarnobat won a gold medal in women's 25m air pistol.

Sarnobat booked a spot in the Tokyo Olympics by the virtue of the gold medal. The Olympics will take place next year.
