This was her first world cup medal. She also went on to win silver medal in the World Cup Final in Munich in 2015. Apurvi also broke the world record for the finals round when she shot 211.2 to win gold at the 2016 Swedish Cup.

At the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Apurvi won a Gold medal in the 10 m Air Rifle event with a games record score in qualification and in the finals.

Apurvi was inspired by the gold medal winning feat on Abhinav Bindra in 2008 Olympics and took up rifle shooting after her father encouraged her to try shooting. She shot for the first time in 2008 and has never looked back since then. She made her mark when she won the Gold medal in the Senior National Championship in 2012, her first year in the senior circuit.

She won a Gold and a Bronze medal at the 35th Intershoot competition in the Netherlands in March 2014.
