Gabala, June 13: Indias Satyendra Singh reached the fils of the Mens 50-metre Rifle 3 Positions event, only to finish eighth on the concluding day of the third and fil stage of the Intertiol Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup Rifle/Pistol series here on Tuesday.

India had three filists in the Gabala World Cup -- Megha Sajjar and Pooja Ghatkar being the other two in the Women's 10m Air Rifle, besides Satyendra.

Megha and Pooja finished fourth and fifth respectively and India could not make it to the medal tally here.

India though won the 10m Air Pistol Mixed Team gold, with the pair of Jitu Rai and Hee Sidhu emerging winners in the event which, however, is not being considered for the medal tally at the World Cup stage this year.

The mixed team event is going to be a full-fledged Olympic medal event in the Tokyo 2020 summer Olympics. IANS
