Junior Shotgun cup: Manavaditya and Kirti shine in Europe

Continuing their impressive run in international competitions, India's junior shooting squad, including Olympic silver medallist Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore's son Manavaditya, returned with an impressive haul of four gold , six silver and 10 bronze medals from two top international competitions held in Europe.

Manavaditya Singh Rathore and Kirti Gupta's individual gold medals in the Junior Men's and Women's Trap events respectively in the 8th International Junior Shotgun Cup held in Orimattila, Finland between May 26-29, 2016 were the icing on the cake.

Manavaditya, son of former Olympic Silver medalist Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, nailed the trap gold on the last day of competition to go along with the team bronze he had won earlier in the day along with Lakshaya and Kismat Chopra.

Kirti had won a double gold a day earlier as she bagged the team trap gold as well with teammates Manisha Keer and Pragat Dubey.

India won a total of three gold, two silver and four bronze medals in the competition for a total of nine medals from the five events on show.
