Asian Games 2018: Meerut boy Saurabh Chaudhary clinches Gold medal in Shooting

At the age of just 16 years, Saurabh Chaudhary on Tuesday became only the fifth Indian shooter to claim a gold in the Asian Games history, beating a field of multiple world and Olympic champions in the 10m air pistol finals. Chaudhary, competing in his first senior event, showed maturity and calmness well beyond his age to snatch the lead from 2010 World Champion Tomoyuki Matsuda on the penultimate shot in the 24-shot final.
