With this announcement, India also lost out in the race to host 2026 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) and 2030 Asian Games.
This was India's 12th medal and first bronze in these ongoing Games. The country has already won three gold and eight silver.
In a new format, there are no finals in track and field (with the exception of 4km cross-country) in the Youth Olympics and each event is held twice, with results from both rounds counting towards the final standings.
Hockey 5s, the five-a-side version, is played on a pitch smaller than the normal 11-player game and it was introduced in the 2014 Singapore Youth Olympics.
Bhaker thus became the second Indian to win two medals at the ongoing Youth Games after judoka Tababi Thangjam.
Chaudhary, an Asian Games and Junior ISSF World Championship gold medallist, shot 244.2 to finish on top of the podium ahead of South Korea's Sung Yunho (236.7). Switzerland's Solari Jason bagged the bronze with 215.6.
Bhaker shot 236.5 to finish on top of the podium, making up for the heartbreak at the Asian Games in Indonesia and the World Championship where she could not live up to her billing.
The 15-year-old from Aizwal, who is also a world youth silver-medallist, lifted a total of 274kg (124kg +150kg) to top honours in the men's 62kg category at Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games Monday night.
