Dhanush Srikant of Telangana defeated two-time Junior World Cup bronze medallist Arjun Babuta of Punjab when he fired the last shot to win a gold medal in the under-21 boys 10m air rifle final at Balewadi sports stadium on Friday. He wasn't wearing his hearing aid during the content. But the 16-year-old Telangana boy knew he had won gold as he beamed at his mother and coach. Indeed, the medal at the Khelo India Youth Games was special, as it came not just after Dhanush defeated junior World Cup bronze medalist Arjun Babuta but also because it made him the only shooter in the country with hearing impairment to have won a medal in the regular category.
