Ronjan wins silver at ISSF World Cup finals

September 24, 2012 22:45 IST

Leaving behind the London Olympics disappointment, India's ace double trap shooter Ronjan Sodhi won a silver medal at the ISSF World Cup in Slovania.

Sodhi, who had failed to qualify for the finals of the Olympics, shot a score of 191 (144+47), which is three more than the London Games gold medal score.

It is third year in a row that Ronjan has won a medal at World Cup finals. In the previous two editions -- 2010 and 2011 -- he had won a gold each.

National Rifles Association of India (NRAI) President Raninder Singh praised the performance of the Ferozpur shooter and said he will continue to bring laurels for the country.
