Abhishek Verma won the gold medal and Saurabh Chaudhary the bronze, in a dominant display by Indian shooters in the men's 10m air pistol event of the World Cup at Rio de Janeiro. Verma shot 244.2 in the eight-man finals, while Chaudhary's 221.9 was good enough to get him the bronze. 

India have already exhausted the maximum Olympic quotas available per country in this event, with both Verma and Chaudhary securing the quotas in the previous qualifying events. Now, India's quota holders are Sanjeev Rajput, Anjum Moudgil, Apurvi Chandela, Saurabh Chaudhary, Abhishek Verma, Divyansh Singh Panwar, Rahi Sarnobat and Manu Bhaker.

India were placed at the top of the medals tally with two gold, one silver and a bronze. The young Elavenil Valarivan opened India's account with a gold in the women's 10m air rifle event on the opening day. Sanjeev Rajput then claimed a silver in the men's 50m rifle 3 positions final to secure India's Olympic quota. Verma and Chaudhary ended the second day of competitions on a high note for India.
