7:50pm | And Sen survives yet again

7:45pm | Superb one from Mehuli as she shot a 10.4 and 10.8 as Tilottama goes into shootoff with Muller and its the French who exits as Sen hits a 10.7

2:30pm | Skeet men saw Angad 121/125 at 29th, Anant 120/125 at 44th while Gurjaot with 115/125 at 95th

12:30pm | It was yet another disappointment as all the three shooters fail to make the finals. Divyansh scored 627.5 to be placed at 28th. Aishwary who was looking good had a forgetful last couple of series and eventually did 627.3 for a 33rd place finish. Hriday was 66th.

11:00am | Esha shot a 98,96,94 to be placed 9th provisionally in the 25m pistol precision.
10:50am | Yet another 104s series for Hriday and that would be end of his chances to make finals

10:30am | 10m Air Rifle Hriday finds himself at 14th with a series of 104.7 and 104.8 honestly going to be very difficult unless he now finds 106 series somewhere

18 August 2023

5:30pm | At the end of the day2 in men skeet Angad Bajwa has climbed up to 25th place with a perfect 50/50 score. It may not be enough eventually as he has 97/100. Needs a lot of things to fall in place and yet again perfect round tomorrow. Other Indians Anant is 41st with a 96/100 and Gurjoat with a 91/98 is placed 91st at the moment.

5:00pm | Parinaaz was placed 19th for a 118/125 while Ganemat was 21st for the same score. Darshana with a 115 was placed at 38th place. None made the Finals

3:30pm | Coming back on the Qualifications for Women 10m Air Pistol where once again we have no Paris quota. Three Indians are set to make a splash in the qualifiers.

  • Shiva | 579 | Rank 17
  • Sarabjot | 578 | Rank 18
  • Arjun | 577 | Rank 26

qualifying cut-off 582

11:35am | Shiva 579 and Arjun 577 are out of the finals race as they finish outside the top8 even as the second set of shooters are yet to start. Disappointing to say the least

10:40am | Pretty high scores here, Shiva with a 97,99,96 is placed fifth while Arjun with a 98,96,96,87 is at 12th. Remember this is just one set of shooters so a safe position is about 3/4 place
