1.Rakesh Manpat pipped former World and Olympic champion Abhinav Bindra by 0.3 point for the gold in the third air rifle match of the 39th Intershoot international shooting competition at The Hague on Saturday.

2.It was an impressive fare from the former national champion in 50-metre rifle prone event as the 24-year-old Manpat pounced on the chance in the climax with shots of 10.3 and 10.4 after having seen Bindra lead right till the last two shots. Both the shooters delivered 10.4 on the last shot and Bindra’s 9.8 penultimate shot proved the difference.

3.Manpat capitalised on a sound start when he led after six shots with a score of 63.2. He did grapple with two 9s afterwards but stayed in the hunt for the top honour as he comfortably sailed past London Olympics champion Alin George Moldoveanu of Romania.

4.Interestingly, Bindra had won the gold in the first two matches and that included a win over Manpat by 1.2 points in the first match.
