Hailing from Kolhapur in Maharashtra, Rahi had won her first gold medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games 2008.
Rahi was India’s first pistol shooter to win gold medal at the world cup. She won the 25 m pistol event in the ISSF World Cup in Changwon in 2013.
After clinching back-to-back golds at the 2010 Delhi and 2014 Glasgow CWG in the 25m pistol event, the 27-year-old was looking to register his first major win at the 2018 Asian Games, since making her comeback from a year-long break following her elbow injury.
