Sandhu beats Diamond to clinch bronze
Former World Champion Manavjit Singh Sandhu continued India's downpour of medals from shooting when he clinched the men's trap bronze by defeating Australia's two-time Olympic champion Michael Diamond at the Commonwealth Games here Tuesday.
The 37-year-old Sandhu, a former World No.1, beat five-time CWG gold medallist Diamond in a shoot-off after both were tied at 11 points each in the bronze medal playoff at the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre.
This is India's second medal of the day after another shooter Harpreet Singh opened the count by clinching the men's 25-metre rapid fire pistol silver.
Meanwhile, Diamond's compatriot Adam Vella beat England's Aaron Heading in the gold medal contest, bagging 11 points to Heading's 9.
Earlier, Mansher Singh was ousted from the semi-finals as he finished sixth and last out of all the competitors. Sandhu finished third, thus qualifying for the playoff.
