Pune, Jan 13 (PTI) Devanshi Rana's solid start provided her the necessary insurance against a less-than- productive showing in the final stages to win the junior (Under-21) women's 25m pistol gold in the Khelo India Youth Games here Sunday.

In the end, national junior pistol coach Jaspal Rana's daughter held off a challenge by Haryana's resurgent Anjali Choudhary, a media release said.

Jaspal Rana himself is former gold medal winner in Asian Games, Asian Shooting Championships and the World's Shooting Championships.

West Bengal's Mehuli Ghosh became the first double gold medallist in shooting at the Games when she teamed up with 10-year-old Abhinav Shaw in the 10m air rifle mixed team event.

Manisha Keer followed suit not too long after by winning the mixed trap gold for Madhya Pradesh with Anwer Hassan Khan.

She had claimed gold in the women's trap yesterday.

But despite Mehuli and Manisha's double gold medals, it was Devanshi Rana who took the largest share of the spotlight on Sunday
