Shooters Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary teamed up to win India’s second gold medal at the ongoing ISSF World Cup in Beijing, China on Thursday.

Bhaker-Chaudhary defeated their Chinese opponents 16-6 in the final to win the elusive yellow metal.

However, Bhaker had failed to shine in 10m Women’s Air Pistol event at the World Cup and could not even qualify for the finals but the teenager made the corrective measures in the mixed team event.

Earlier in the day, Anjum Moudgil and Divyansh Singh Panwar won India’s first gold medal at the World Cup.

The pair of Moudgil-Panwar won a closely contested final 17-15 against Chinese pair of Liu Ruxuan and Yang Haoran.
