Angad Vir Singh Bajwa and Mairaj Ahmad won gold and silver, respectively, in the men's skeet event while Aishwarya Singh Tomar won bronze in men's 50m rifle three positions to confirm three more Olympic quotas for India at the Asian Shooting Championships on Sunday.

Angad and Mairaj are the only Indians to have won quotas in shotgun events.

Apart from these, India have quotas in men's and women's 10m air rifle (Anjum Moudgil, Apurvi Chandela, Divyansh Singh Panwar, Deepak Kumar), women's 25m air pistol (Rahi Sarnobat, Chinki Yadav) and men's and women's 10m air pistol (Saurabh Chaudhary, Abhishek Varma, Manu Bhaker, Yashaswini Deswal).
