New Delhi: India won its 10th gold medal at the ISSF Junior World Championships, being held in Lima (Peru), after Vijayveer Sidhu and Rhythm Sangwan outclassed Thailand's Kanyakom Hirunphoem and Schwakon Triniphakorn 9-1 in the mixed rapid fire event, according to information received here on Friday.

Also winning silver on the day was the junior women's 50m rifle 3-positions (3P) team comprising Prasiddhi Mahant, Nishcal and Ayushi Podder, while the second Indian pair in mixed rapid fire pistol, Tejaswini and Anish Bhanwala, also won bronze, making it a total haul of 23 medal thus far with two more competition days remaining.

Vijayveer and Rhythm came through two rounds of qualifying to completely dominate their match against the Thai pair, not allowing them to win even one series.
