Yuliya Chernoy of Israel took bronze on 225.6 points.

Tomas Pesek of the Czech Republic sprang a surprise as he clinched gold in the men's 10m air pistol SH1 competition.

The Czech outsider scored 237.1 to claim the world title, with Sergey Malyshev of Russia second on 233.6 points.

India's Manish Narwal did enough for bronze having scored 215.3.

Italy won the 10m air rifle standing mixed team SH2 crown with a world record total of 497.0 points.

Sweden were second on 495.5 and New Zealand earned bronze on 432.5 points.
