LONDON, July 29: Indian shooters continued to misfire at the Olympic Games as Heena Sidhu and Annu Raj Singh bowed out of the women’s 10m air pistol event after failing to qualify for the finals on Sunday. Heena came close after finishing 12th with a score of 382 while Annu Raj ended 23rd at the Royal Artillery Barracks.
While Heena had a sequence of 93 97 97 95, Annu Raj shot a series of 94 96 97 91, efforts not good enough to see them into the top-8.
China’s Wenjun Guo won the gold medal, the silver went to France’s Celine Goberville while the bronze medal was won by Olena Kostevych of Ukraine.
It was the second day in a row that the Indians have failed to qualify and it will put enormous pressure on the other shooters who are expected to do the bulk of the medal shopping. Agencies
