Avi Hangshing Bags Pistol Shooting Gold
B’nei Menashe marksman Avi Hangshing has come in first in the annual Israel Independence Day shooting competition held earlier this month by the Israel Pistol Shooting Club. Pitted against 250 rivals in a cross-category contest that scored participants for their speed and accuracy, Hangshing finished with an unbeatable 100 percent score.
Hangshing, who came to Israel from Manipur with his parents in the year 2000, was a 2020 Degel Menashe scholarship winner, one of the few recipients in the award’s history in a non-academic field. The grant, given him to practice and improve his marksmanship, was clearly money well-spent.
