In the finals, Yash took an early lead after the first ten shots and then completely dominated the finals to claim his first IOSC title.

The second place was won by Olympic quota winner Martin Strempfl of Austria with 250.7 while Oleksandr Halkin of Ukraine took the bronze with 229.3.

Shooters from 20 countries took part in the two-day competition organised by former India shooter Shimon Sharif.
