46-year-old Mairaj Ahmed Khan on Monday, July 18 scripted history as he won India’s first-ever ISSF World Cup gold medal in the men’s skeet shooting event in Changwon. The oldest member of India’s shooting contingent at the Changwon World Cup shot 37 in the 40-shot final.

Mairaj, who hails from Uttar Pradesh, finished ahead of Korea’s Minsu Kim (36) and Britain’s Ben Llewellin (26), who won the silver and bronze respectively.

Mairaj had shot 119/125 over two days of qualifying before coming through in a five-way shoot-off. Mairaj found himself vying for two final qualification spots along with four others, including two-time Olympic medallist Abdullah Al Rashidi of Kuwait.

The two-time Olympic had won a silver medal in men’s skeet in a 2016 edition of the ISSF World Cup in Rio de Janeiro.

Earlier in the day, the trio of Anjum Moudgil, Ashi Chouksey, and Sift Kaur Samra won bronze in the women’s 50m rifle 3P team event.

The Indians outplayed the Austrian team of Sheileen Waibel, Nadine Ungerank, and Rebecca Koeck 16-6 in the bronze medal match to comfortably secure a podium finish.But the day undoubtedly belonged to Khan.

With one gold and bronze on Monday, India remained on top of the medal tally with 13 medals (5 gold, 5 silver, and 3 bronze).
