The Indian contingent picked up 8 medals including 5 golds on the final day of the ISSF World Cup and finished atop the medals tally. In the 10m air pistol mixed team, India finished with gold and silver as Devanshi Rana and Saurabh Chaudhary edged ahead of compatriots Manu Bhaker and Anmol Jain.

The Indian shooters' domineering display continued in the ISSF Junior World Cup in Suhl, Germany. India were leading the table with 18 medals, including ten golds, one silver, and seven bronze, even before the final day started. Thursday was no different as India witnessed its richest haul on a single day at World Cup as they clinched 8 medals which included five golds, one silver and two bronze. 

India's five gold medal came in 25m standard pistol men junior, individual and team, 25m standard pistol women junior, individual and team, and 10m air pistol mixed team event. The two bronze medals was bagged in the 25m standard pistol junior men as well as in the junior women’s skeet team event - an event where traditionally India has not enjoyed too much success.

The medals galore thus saw India finish with 26 medals - 15 gold, two silver and nine bronze, finishing at the top of medals tally. China, who finished first in inaugural World Cup in Sydney had to settle behind India at second. During the course of the Junior World Cup, Indian shooters established five new junior world records and equalled few others. 

However, the highlight of the final day was India's top two finish in the 10m air pistol mixed team event. Devanshi Rana and Saurabh Chaudhary took on compatriots Manu Bhaker and Anmol Jain in five team final. Rana and Chaudhary shot a total of 478.9 to win gold as they edged out Manu and Anmol who scored 474.4.
