Sukhbeer Singh and Raginee Markoo prevailed over their Swiss opponents Andrea Vallaro and Janine Hunsperger 152-147 to clinch their second medal of the tournament.

In the first end, the Indian duo shot two 10s to win 38-36, and they followed it up with three 10s in the second end to make it 39-37.

Andrea and Janine gave some fight in the third end but Sukhbeer and Raginee managed to prevail by one point (37-36) for an overall five-point lead.

Both shot 38-all in the final end but the Indians' overall lead was enough to clinch the issue 114-109.
