“I would like to thank, my family, coaches and every citizen of the country from the bottom of my heart,” Manish told ANI.

In the same event, Singhraj Adhana grabbed his second medal of the Tokyo Paralympics with 216.7 points as he clinched silver on Saturday.

Manish who finished seventh in the qualification, had a very jittery start to the final as he gathered 87.2 in the 1st competition stage.

Singhraj and Manish then stepped up when it mattered the most as both shooters held their nerves against the early charge of the Chinese pair in the elimination stage.

Manish then dramatically dropped to the 4th position after the 18th shot. But in his 19th and 20th shot, the 19-year-old Indian aimed a sensational 10.8 and 10.5 to grab the first place from Singhraj.

With a fight against the compatriot for a first-place finish, Manish finished with an 8.4 and 9.1 meanwhile Singhraj aimed 8.5 and 9.4 in his last two shots.

Earlier this week, Singhraj clinched a bronze medal in the P1 men’s 10m Air Pistol SH1 final.
