Rudrankksh is starting to favor the Cairo range as a hunting location. The Thane shooter has five gold medals total after winning the World Championships title last year, including two gold medals in mixed events (one each from the WCH and the WC) and 3 different medals (1 WCH, 1 WC, 1 WC Finals).
Rudrankksh’s heart was broken by the Cairo race in his maiden World Cup appearance, where he placed 11th.
The player said jokingly, “It looks like I have taken my retribution appropriately. “My first visit was disheartening because I wasn’t even able to advance to the final. But following that, I took home every gold medal offered here.
