Rudrankksh Balasaheb Patil, the Reigning world champion, has put the icing on the cake by winning gold in the 10m air rifle men’s event at the prestigious season-ending International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) President’s Cup. The young lad, two weeks shy of his 19th birthday, beat familiar Italian foe and world number one Danilo Solazzo 16-8 in the gold medal match in Cairo. Rudrankksh had qualified for the top eight ranking round with a brilliant 632.1, which gave him third place in the 14-man field. He then topped his four-man ranking round with a score of 211.7, which was a massive 2.8 points ahead of Hungary’s former world number one, Istvan Peni, who finished second.
Rudrankksh’s next challenge was Tokyo Olympics finalist Patrik Jany of Slovakia, whom he beat 16-10 to set up the title clash with Danilo. Rudrankksh had given his sensational form and did not give Danilo a whiff of a chance in the final, hitting high 10s consistently to close the match out clinically. He hit the lowest 10.0, with as many as two scores of the perfect 10.9 in a display of high-class rifle shooting.

It has given me the confidence to win different finals in the future.”I wouldn’t be here without my parents because of the sacrifices they have taken me to train, competitions and everything else.”I couldn’t have done it without them, which is why I dedicated my gold medal to my mum and dad.” Behind every athlete is a proud parent
