Narang will end year as Asia’s No.1
New Delhi: Gagan Narang will end the year as the No.1 Asian shooter, according to the latest rankings issued by Asian Shooting Confederation. Narang, who won four gold medals in the Commonwealth Games, missed out of the yellow metal in the Asian Games by a whisker to Chinese ace Zhu Qinan in the 10m air rifle event in China. However, owing to the huge difference in points between the two before the start of the Asian Games, the 27-year-old will remain Asia’s No.1.
