Isha shot 251.8 in the final while Umamahesh shot 252.1. The men's event saw a clean sweep of the medals by India as Parth Mane and Ajay Malik took silver and bronze medals while Shambhavi Kshirsagar won bronze in the women's junior air rifle as India picked up five medals on the day.

Isha's 630.9 was enough for her to top the qualifications field as she led a group of three Indians into the top eight. In the final, after trailing Bangladesh's Jafira Chowdhary after the first five shots, Isha took the lead after the second five and from then on brooked no opposition to take gold.
