Indian shooter Shreyashi Singh shot her career best in women’s double trap to increase India’s Gold Medal count to 12 by winning the event on Wednesday in Commonwealth Games 2018 at Gold Coast.

Her successful performance thus gave India its second medal of the day, following the bronze won by shooter Om Mitharval in the 50m pistol men’s finals.

At day seven Shreyasi dominated the very strong 10-member field to earn her second double trap medal after she won silver in the same event four years in Glasgow CWG. This was her third attempt to win a Gold Medal and she successfully managed to do the same as she edged Australia’s Emma Cox.
