Ganemat Sekhon won the women’s skeet event.

Anantjeet Singh Naruka and Ganemat Sekhon clinched top honours in men’s and women’s skeet respectively at the National Shooting Championships 2023. The former representing Rajasthan topped the qualifiers by scoring 123 out of 125. In the final he went a notch above to claim the top spot.

In the women’s section, Ganemat Sekhon from Punjab registered 56 from a maximum of 60 shots in the final. However, she had a sub-par outing in the qualification scoring 116. Zahra Deesawala and Sanjana Sood finished second and third respectively.

In the recently concluded ISSF World Cup Finals 2023, Sekhon equaled the national record in the qualification with a score of 120. But she couldn’t replicate the same in the final as she finished fifth to finish a good season.

Later in the day, world record holder Sift Kaur Samra won the gold medal in women’s 50m 3 Positions event. Experienced shooter Anjum Moudgil finished second while Ashi Chouksey who had a successful outing at the Asiad finished third.

Earlier this year at Asian Games, Sift Kaur Samra became the first Indian individual to win a gold medal and she did so by breaking both the Games and world record. Meanwhile, compatriot Ashi Chouksey claimed bronze in the same event.

Olympian Anjum Moudgil has been part of the national team for past few years. But she wasn’t part of the Indian contingent for the Asian Games due to lack of form. With the National Shooting Championships medal and the trials in a few months time, Anjum will look to get back to her best and put up a tough fight for qualification to Paris Olympics 2024.
