Anish shines at WC

Guadalajara, March 8: Indian teenager Anish Bhanwala stood third after the first qualifying round of the Men’s 25m Rapid Fire Pistol event at the Shooting World Cup here.
The 15-year old, who has a bright chance of making it to the final in his senior World Cup debut, was sandwiched by three 2016 Rio Olympics medallists after the first round here on Wednesday evening. Anish, who recently equalled the world record in the event at the national trials, shot 294 out of 300 in the precision stage, to lie behind China’s Rio Olympics bronze medallist Yuehong Li, who shot the same score to be in second place and France’s Clement Bessaguet, who shot 295 to be at the top of the qualifying ladder.
