India had a slow start but we touched double figures on the third day with many more assuring performances that are yet to unveil in upcoming events. How ever, the shooters from India has performed exceptionally well with two teenagers, Lakshay Sheoran and Saurabh Chaudhary winning Silver and Gold medal respectively. Lakshay who is just 19 years old and Saurabh is even younger and just in his early sixteens also created a new record at Asian Games.
Our shooters continue to make us proud! Congratulations to Deepak Kumar and Lakshay Sheoran for winning Silver medals in the men's 10m Air Rifle event and trap shooting respectively at #AsianGames2018. #PresidentKovind
