Star Indian shooter Jeetu Rai on Wednesday continued his imperious form in the ongoing International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup as he won gold in the 50m-pistol event here at Karni Singh Shooting Range. Rai shot a world record score of 230.1 to bag the number one spot. His compatriot Amanpreet Singh, who scored 226.9, won silver in the same event. Yesterday, Rai had bronze in the 10-metre Air pistol event. The 29-year-old marksman, who made an eighth-place finish in the men’s 10m air pistol final at the Rio Olympics, was languishing towards the bottom of the table in the initial stages of the final before he made a late surge to come into medal contention.
