India's Junior shooters yesterday won the country's first set of skeet medals at the ISSF World Championships.   

In the competition being held at Changwon, South Korea, the Indian medal tally included a men's team silver and an individual bronze by Gurnihal Singh Garcha.

The trio of Gurnihal, Ananjeet Singh Naruka and Ayush Rudraraju combined for a score of 355 for a second place finish in the finals.

19-year old Gurnihal also made the six-strong individual final where he shot a score of 46 to claim the individual bronze, the biggest achievement of his international career so far.

Italy won the Gold while America won the silver in the event.

Before this edition of the world championship,  India had won all their shotgun medals in the trap and double trap disciplines.   

This will be the first time that India skeet shooters will come back with medals from the premier competition.
