13-year-old Esha Singh displayed an outstanding show at the 62nd National Shooting Championships as she eclipsed over established names like Manu Bhaker and Heena Sidhu to clinch 3 gold medals on Thursday.

Esha went on to win in the Women’s, Youth Women’s and Junior Women’s 10m Air Pistol competitions. On her way, she left behind the likes of Heena, Manu and Shweta Singh to produce an all-round performance.

Esha registered a score of 241.0 in the Women’s final to leave behind Youth Olympic games champion Manu who concluded with 238.9. Shweta, who was representing ONGC at the event, finished third on the podium with a score of 217.2.

Manu Bhaker was India’s flag bearer at the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games, where she became India’s first women to win a gold. Earlier this year, she had also won the two gold medals at the ISSF World Cup to become the youngest Indian to ever achieve the feat.
