Frenchman Romain Aufrere won bronze.

India also picked up a bronze in the Skeet Mixed Team competition, when Harmehar Lally and Sanjana Sood defeated Swedish opponents once again, the pair of David Jonsson and Felicia Ros, whom they had to take out in a shoot-off for bronze.

India now lead the medal tally with three gold, one silver and two bronze medals, ahead of the USA which has two gold medals and one silver thus far. Late in the day, the women's 10m Air Rifle final is also scheduled.

Three Indians made the final of the Junior Men's 10m Air Rifle. Besides Dhanush, who qualified sixth with a score of 628.4, Pratham Bhadana finished above him in fifth with 628.7. Abhinav Shaw, who won the Air Rifle Mixed Team gold on Sunday, also grabbed the eighth and final spot with a score of 626.7.

However, Abhinav bowed out in seventh, while Pratham missed out on a medal with a fourth-place finish. Dhanush though was in a different league in the final and led from the start, going from strength to strength, giving none of his opponents a chance.

There were two Indian teams in the Skeet Mixed Team event. The pair of Ritu Raj Bundela and Raiza Dhillon finished seventh in qualifying with a score of 134. Harmehar Lally and Sanjana Sood, the second pair, made the bronze medal match cut with a fourth-place finish and a combined effort of 136 out of 150 targets.
