Manu Bhaker who clinched a gold in women’s 10m air pistol said the prize has come after gruelling hard work and it’s one of the great moments in her life.

Manu dominated the field from her first shot and closed with nerves of steel to clinch the gold medal in the women’s 10m air pistol competition at the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games.

“I don’t think there is a secret for the India shooting national team’s success here in Buenos Aires,” said Bhaker as she clutched her gold medal with both hands. “I think it’s just the result of our hard work.”

Silver medallist Iana Enina heaps praise for Bhaker. “We know each other well and we competed in different competitions. She is a fantastic shooter and deserved to win today.”

With this win, Manu Bhaker becomes first Indian woman to win a shooting gold in Youth Olympics.
