India's Sanjeev Rajput wins silver in ISSF World Cup


Ace shooter Sanjeev Rajput clinched the silver medal for India in men's 50-metre rifle 3 position event of the ISSF World Cup.  Rajput shot 456.9 to win the silver medal in the last World Cup before the Rio Olympic Games.

Croatia's Petar Gorsa won the gold medal with 457.5, while Hyeonjun Kim of Korea bagged the bronze after he shot 445.5.  Rajput finished seventh in the qualification with a score of 1167 in kneeling, prone and standing position, while Olympic bronze medallist Gagan Narang was 23rd with 1161. Chain Singh was placed 32nd with a total of 1159. This is his 3rd World Cup medal, having won gold in the same event in 2011 and silver in 10-metre Air Rifle in 2010.

So let's do:
1. Expand the term ISSF?
2. Name the Indian shooter,  who won the silver in ISSF World Cup?
