Anuja Jung has won India's 13th gold medal for shooting.

Anuja Jung has added another gold to the family collection with a victory in the Women's 50m Rifle Three Positions Individual at the Melbourne International Shooting Club. This is India's 13th gold in the shooting.

Jung, wife of Indian shooting sensation Samaresh Jung, was ranked third after the qualifying round, but some consistent shooting during the final allowed her to close in on South African Esmari Van Rennen and take the gold.

Anuja Jung of India dedicated her winning gold to her daughter. She said, "I was very lucky today and thank you God. I'm just going to relax and let it sink in that I'm Commonwealth champion."

Van Rennen was the most accurate after the qualifying round and kept the heat on Jung throughout the final but just fell short, finishing with the silver.

Malaysian Mohamed Nur Suryani Binti, who was equally as good as Van Rennen in the qualifier, seemed to lose her way in the final, ending up with the bronze.

One half of the twin sister combo from Wales, Sian Corish, finished in fourth, with Anjali Mandar Bhagwat from India in fifth.

Ecstatic about her silver medal, Esmari Van Reenen of South Africa said "I can't believe it. It's a moment I can't describe. I didn't expect anything."
