A bronze for Heena Sidhu in 10m Air Pistol at the Asian Games


Indian star shooter, veteran of many wins, Heena Sidhu struck the bronze medal in 10m Air Pistol at the Asian Games 2018. She finished with a total of 219.2 and sealed the 9th medal in Shooting for India.

Sidhu had a bad start when she scored just 96.7 in the first stage and finished in the 7th position. She came back in the second stage when she scored 9.8 in her first shot but remained in the 7th position with 117.1. Heena was facing elimination in the next round but bounced back with a 10.6 and a 10.3 in the 4th series to climb up to the 4th position. Then she continued to score higher points and managed to secure a bronze for herself. 

Sidhu’s fellow shooter, Manu Bhaker, had a disappointing Asian Games outing after she finished in the 5th position with a score of 176.2.
