Ankur Mittal clinching the silver medal in a marathon double trap final.

The 24-year-old Mittal finished second on the podium after he tallied 74, one behind gold medal winner James Willett of Australia. Great Britain’s Steven Scott was third on the standings with 56.

Asian champion Mittal was in running for a gold medal but three consecutive misses in the final stages ensured a second-place finish, leaving the Australia, who missed one bird after the Indian’s hat-trick of misses, to run away with the top prize.
