India won just one medal in shooting on day 4 but it was a gold medal courtesy of Rahi Sarnobat's incredible display in the Women's 25m Pistol Finals. In a thrilling finish that went to a shoot-off, it was Rahi who held her nerve. Even before the shoot-off she had already set an Asian Games record in the process.

Although Manu Bhaker will be disappointed with her performance in the final after she broke the Qualification Asian Games record, it was another impressive day for India in shooting. Join us again tomorrow for more shooting action  but until then it is goodbye.

Final standings after a frenetic finish


...
Thailand miss the last three and India win despite missing the last two. What a finish this has been and Thailand have bottled it right at the end after having one hand on the gold medal towards the end.
...
India take a lead after three shots. India hit all three, Thailand miss one. How crucial will that be?
...
Will it be Thailand or India for the gold medal? Both hit the first two shots and it is neck and neck with three shots to go.
...
So much drama here. And we will have another shoot-off. Five more shots coming up.
...
And we are level again as Thailand miss when they just needed to hit to win the GOLD medal.
...
The pressure is on both shooters. But more so on Yangpaiboon who has now missed five in a row.

Thailand miss all five and the scores are level. It will be a shoot-off for the gold medal.

Thailand miss all three and the scores are level with two shots remaining.

Pressure on both India and Thailand, who both miss three in that round. And that lead is just one. But that is a terrible performance from the top two.

Standings after the first two rounds
...
The first round is done but there are four more rounds just like that. Before the eliminations begin.
...
Excellent start from Rahi Sarnobat, who leads the way with five out of five. Manu Bhaker has three.
...
India have two shooters and will be hoping to improve their medal tally with a medal or two. The shooters are ready and the Women's 25m Pistol finals has begun.
...
The good news is that the action is about to get underway.
...
Officially, there is no word yet on when the event will begin but as always, you will have all updates, the moment I do. Until then, why not hop over to the tennis action where India are looking to secure at least bronze by advancing to the semi-final.
...
Officially, the game is supposed to start at 3.00 PM. But what is unclear is what time zone that is. Because Indonesia has three different time zones, it is unclear whether it is in Eastern Indonesian Time (EIT) or Central Indonesian Time (CIT) or local time. It is currently 3.16 PM at Jakarta (local time) and it is 4.16 CIT and 5.16 EIT.
...
Those of you who are waiting for the 25m Pistol finals and cursing me because the event hasn't begun should know that while the event hasn't been delayed, the time zone difference has made life difficult for anyone trying to find out when at event begins.
...
We are less than 10 minutes away from the final of the Women's 25m Pistol that will feature two Indians. Manu Bhaker, who broke the Qualification Asian Games record and finished top and Rahi Sarnobat will be hoping to add to India's already impressive medal tally in shooting.
...
Women's 25m Pistol Finals featuring India's Manu Bhaker and Rahi Sarnobat will take place at 1.30 PM IST.
...
With that, Manu Bhaker and Rahi Sarnobat remain India's only hopes of a shooting medal on day 4 of the Asian Games 2018.
...
Anjum Moudgil just misses out but here are the shooters who qualified for the 50m Rifle 3 Final

ICYMI: 16-year-old Saurabh Chaudhary broke an Asian Games Record and walked away with the GOLD medal in the 10m Air Pistol yesterday. That was also India's first shooting gold in Asian Games 2018.
...
India have won seven medals so far in shooting in the Asian Games 2018. Manu Bhaker is certainly doing everything she can to ensure that she adds to it.
