Doha: Chinki Yadav secured India’s 11th Tokyo Olympic quota in shooting after qualifying for the women’s 25m Pistol final at the 14th Asian Championships, here on Friday.

Chinki shot a perfect 100 to finish second in the qualification stage with a score of 588, behind Thailand’s Naphaswan Yangpaiboon (590).
