By P. Vijian

NEW DELHI, Oct 6 (Bernama) -- Shooter Bibiana Ng Pei Chin added another bronze to Malaysia's medal tally Wednesday after finishing third in the women's individual 25m pistol event at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games.

Indian shooters dominated the event Anisa Sayyed took the gold with 786.8 points while compatriot Rahi Sarnobat finished second with 781.2 points and Bibiana Ng finished with 778.2 points.

It was the second medal from shooting as Benjamin Khor Cheng Jie and Khor Seng Chye managed to win a bronze in the double trap shooting event Wednesday morning.

Indian shooters have bagged four gold and three silver medals in the shooting events so far and Anisa won India's seventh gold medal of the Games.

"I was dreaming for this since yesterday. I was very nervous, my legs were shaking and didn't laugh since morning. But attended training camp helped a lot," Anisa said after the win.

Malaysia are currently in fourth spot in the overall medal tally with three gold, two silver and three bronze.
