Ronjan shoots gold at ISSF World Cup in Izmir

New Delhi: India`s Ronjan Sodhi on Monday
clinched a gold at the double trap event in the ISSF World Cup
finals in Izmir, Turkey.

Sodhi shot a stunning 195 out of 200 to emerge
victorious. The World no 5 had earlier scored 143 in the
qualifying round.

Sodhi, one of India`s brightest medal prospects in the
shooting event in the forthcoming Commonwealth Games here, had
struck gold in the Lonato World Cup earlier this year with an
identical score.

Just two days before the finals, Sodhi said he had been
practicing hard for the shotgun World Cup and his effort
seemed to have paid off.

Apart form the Commonwealth Games, Sodhi will be taking
part in other important tournaments over the next couple of
months, including the Asian Games in Guangzhou in November.
