  Shriyanka secures SAG gold and silver medals
BHUBANESWAR,03 Dec 2019 (Team Orisports)

Top Odisha markswoman Shriyanka Sadangi added two more international medals to her name by winning team gold and individual silver in 10m air rifle event of the 13th South Asian Games, which is being held in Kathmandu and Pokhara (Nepal) from December 1, 2019.

Indian team, featuring Mehuli Ghosh, Shriyanka Sadangi and Shreya Agarwal, made a clean sweep all medals in the women 10m air rifle event. Mehuli also grabbed the individual gold with a score of 253.3 which is 0.4 more than the world record. The world record of 252.9 points now stands in the name of Apurvi Chandela (India).


However, the efforts of Mehuli will not be considered as a world record, as the results of South Asian Games are not considered international shooting body (ISSF) for the purpose of records.

Shriyanka took the individual silver medal with a score of 250.8, while Shreya (227.2) clinched the bronze in a 1-2-3 podium finish by the Indians at the Satdobato Shooting Range in Kathmandu.
