Sarnobat, Sayyed bag gold in pairs 25m pistol

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 5 (PTI): Shooters Rahi Sarnobat and Anisa Sayyed added another gold to India's medal tally in the Commonwealth Games by winning in the pairs 25m pistol event for women at the Karni Singh Shooting Range here today.

Sarnobat and Sayyed shot an impressive 1158 to finish ahead of Australia's Lalita Yauhleuskaya and Linda Ryan (1148) and England's Gorgs Geikie and Julia Lydall (1122) in the event.

This, incidentally, is also a new Games record, which came moments after Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang's record-breaking gold-winning feat in 10m air rifle event.

While the 30-year-old Sayyed from Haryana is an experienced hand, having played in a number of tournaments, Sarnobat is just beginning to bloom. Like Tejeswani Sawant, the 20-year-old Sarnobat too hails from Kolhapur, Maharashtra, and is rated highly by those who know her.
