Heena Sidhu becomes first Indian pistol shooter to win Gold at World Cup Final
India’s Heena Sidhu has created history by becoming the first Indian pistol shooter to win a Gold at the World Cup Final. In the Women’s 10-metre Air Pistol event at the ISSF World Cup final in Munich yesterday, the 24-year-old shooter got the better of World Champion Zorana Arunovic of Serbia to bag her first Gold at the world level.
