Indian shooter Om Mitharval took the bronze medal in the men's 50-metre Pistol event at the 21st Commonwealth Games. Om registered a score of 201.1 in the final. Daniel Repacholi of Australia took the gold with a new CWG record of 227.2. Shakil Ahmed of Bangladesh took silver with 220.5.

Defending champion Jitu Rai, the other Indian in the fray, had a disappointing outing. The reigning Asian Games champion registered a decidedly below par 105 to finish at the bottom of the eight-man final. Om had a good start in the final, scoring 111.3 after the first round in Stage 2 to take the second spot behind Swee Hon Lim.
