Singhraj Adhana won the bronze medal in the P1 men’s 10m air pistol SH1 event at the Tokyo Paralympics on Tuesday. This was India’s eighth medal at the ongoing Games.
He shot a total of 216.8 in the final to finish behind China’s Chao Yang, who won the gold medal with a Paralympic record, and Xing Huang.
Singhraj’s medal is India’s eighth at Tokyo 2020, double the country’s previous best haul at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
PM Narendra Modi took to Twitter today, saying, “Exceptional performance by Singhraj Adhana! India’s talented shooter brings home the coveted Bronze Medal. He has worked tremendously hard and achieved remarkable successes. Congratulations to him and best wishes for the endeavours ahead.”
