The Indian team shot 43 in the gold medal showdown to finish behind the Polish trio of Aneta Stankiewicz, Aleksandra Szutko and Natalia Kochanska, who scored 47 to grab the top prize. The Indian team had scored 1304 and 864 in the first and second qualifying rounds, respectively.

The bronze medal went to the Indonesian team consisting of Vidya Rafika Rahmatan Toyyiba, Monica Daryanti and Audrey Zahra Dhiyaanisa, who beat the Hungarian team of Lalita Gaspar, Eszter Denes and Lea Horvath 47-43.
