@Media_SAI
Birthday boy Deepak Kumar secured India's 10th Olympic quota in shooting while Manu Bhaker claimed the women's 10 metres air pistol gold medal in the 14th Asian Championship in Doha today. 

Deepak gifted himself a bronze medal in men's 10 metres air rifle on the opening day of the championship. Deepak shot 227.8 in the eight-man final to finish third on the podium and add to India's quotas for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Later in the day, Bhaker shot 244.3 to win the top prize in her event. The Haryana sensation had already secured an Olympic quota at the Munich World Cup in May.

Deepak is the second Indian shooter to earn an Olympic quota in the men's 10 metres air rifle event after Divyansh Singh Panwar, who secured it in April.
