Additional information

GLASGOW BATTLE
Won gold in the 10m air rifle at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games with an injury. "I would rate the Commonwealth victory as one of my best because I shot with a (ankle) ligament tear. It was a fight not only to win gold, but also within myself with the pain. But I managed to win - it was a great learning experience." (sportskeeda.com, 19 Jan 2016)
