India’s week at the Asian Games got off to an impressive start thanks to a Silver in the Men’s 10m Air Rifle event courtesy Deepak Kumar. Under pressure from the start, Kumar finished with a final score of 247.7, behind China’s Yang Haoran who shot 249.1, a Games Record, to defend his title.
Haoran was always going to be a threat to the rest of the field which featured two Indians, Deepak Kumar and Ravi Kumar. It was Ravi in fact, who was consistently in the top 3 in the final in the initial series, but a 9.2 saw him slip down and get eliminated. He finished fourth eventually with a score of 205.2
