Asian Games: Ashi Chouksey, Manini Kaushik, Sift Samra win 50m 3P team silver



Indian shooting added another team medal to their tally at the Hangzhou Asian Games as the women’s 50m rifle 3 position team won silver on Wednesday.

The trio of Sift Kaur Samra, Ashi Chowkse and Manini Kaushik won the medal with a combined qualifying score of 1764, beating China. Team South Korea won the bronze.

Team medals are based on the total of each country’s shooter’s qualifying scores.

Sift and Chouksi also qualified for the individual final to be held at 9.30 am today, making it another double-Indian final in shooting.

In fact, Sift had a total score of 594 (out of 600) at the Asian Games with China’s Jia Xiu, who was the top scorer by virtue of a higher internal 10 score (closer to the center of the target).

Chouksi had a total of 590 and qualified in sixth place. Meanwhile, Kaushik secured the 18th position with a score of 580. It was enough to win the silver in the end.

This is India’s 15th assured medal at the Asian Games and sixth in shooting. 50m Rifle 3P involves shooting from 3 different positions – kneeling, prone (sleeping) and standing.

It was an interesting battle for the top judge by score. China’s CU got off to a perfect start with 200 out of 200 in the first two positions – kneeling and prone. Sift exposure was also 200.

But once the standings started, the Indian lost his consistency and the Chinese lost a bunch of 10 seconds. Although Siyu was almost double the inner 10s, the final score was the same.

The final score was:


Kneeling 99 98 (197)

prone 100 100 (200)

Standing 98 99 (197)


Kneeling 100 100 200

Prone 100 100 200

98 96 194 stands

Sift, who earned an Olympic quota in the event by finishing fifth in the World Championships final last month, will be backing herself for a good showing in the final. Chouksi, who also competed in the women’s 10m air rifle and got a team medal but did not reach the final, will also be keen to do well.
