New Delhi: Asian Games gold medallist Saurabh Chaudhary bettered his own world record to win the men's 10m air pistol event at the National Shooting trials (T7) here on Saturday.

The Youth Olympics champion Saurabh looked in a league of his own, beating a talented field with ease. He scored 246.8, beating his own finals world record score of 246.3 by a huge 0.5 margin.

The Punjab girl shot 456 to win the finals after topping qualification with a 1170, which was a clear five points more than second placed Sunidhi Chauhan of Madhya Pradesh, who was second in qualifying with 1165.

In the finals, Kajal Saini of Haryana came second with 451.7 and the seasoned Lajja Gauswami of Gujarat was third with 441.

In the men's 10m air T7 finals, Air Force's Shahzar Rizvi, a former world record holder, was second behind Saurabh with 243.7 while Army's Ravinder Kumar was third with a score of 220.3.

Saurabh had earlier also topped the qualifying round with a sublime score of 587. The Army's Vikas Dhama was second with 581 while all other six finalists shot scores of 580.
