Rahi defeated a formidable finals field comprising of fellow Tokyo quota holders Manu Bhaker and Chinki Yadav, besides senior Women's Sports Pistol shooters and India internationals Annu Raj Singh and sa Sayyed.

Rahi shot 36 out of a possible 50 in the finals, to outgun Madhya Pradesh's Chinki, who ended on a score of 34. Among the 10 series of 5-shots each, Rahi shot two perfect 5's and three series of 4's to clinch the match.

At the Shotgun ranges, overnight leaders Lakshay Sheoran and Rajeshwari Kumari won the Men's and Women's T1 Trap competition respectively.

In Women's Trap, it was Punjab's Rajeshwari all the way, as she not only topped qualifying with a 110 but also beat the finals field comprehensively. Her finals score of 43, was a massive seven points clear of second-placed Shreyasi Singh of Bihar.

In the Junior T1 Trap trials, Shapath Bharadwaj of Uttarakhand won the Men's competition while Delhi's Kirti Gupta triumphed in the Women's event.
