It was Bhagwat's third gold of the Games after her victory in the 50m three positions and her win in partnership with Shirur in the 10m air rifle pairs.

Minett was happy to follow up her third place in the pairs with Victoria Eaton with bronze in the individual event.

"India was always going to be hard to beat but I had a stab. I felt pretty sure throughout that I was heading for bronze," she said.

Sharon Bowes of Canada was fourth ahead of Australia's Susan Mccready, Pushpamali Ramanayake of Sri Lanka, Roslina Bakar of Mauritius and Canada's Jacklyn Mecredy.
