Shakil bags silver in 10-metre air pistol online event

Commonwealth Games silver medalist Shakil Ahmed bagged a 10-metre air pistol silver medal in online competition titled Polish Open Kaliber today.

Shakil, who had before won a silver medal from Indonesia Open online competition in November, had scored 240.1 points in the final round, 1.6 points less than gold medalist Ruslan Lunev of Azerbaijan, who scored 241.7 while Olympic gold medalist Ukrainian Olena Kostevych scored 218.8.

Olena won gold medal in women's 10m air pistol event of 2004 Olympic Games after becoming world champion in 2002 World Shooting Championships.

"This is the biggest online completion in Europe so far as more than 200 participants participated in this competition," said Bangladesh Shooting Sports Federation member Mustaq Wais. "Online competition rules have been changed because there is no limit for the players from one country. So under the basis of gender equity there will be four men and four female in the final round."
