Beijing: Indian shooters’ campaign at the Beijing Olympics ended today on a dismal note with Gagan Narang and Sanjeev Rajput failing to qualify for the finals of men’s 50 meter rifle three position here.
Narang fired 1167 to finish 13th while Rajput was a distant 26th with 1162 points in the qualification round.
Narang was way behind in the qualification mark as the last man making the cut tallied 1170 while Rajmond Debevec of Slovenia topped the list with 1176 points.
Rifle pro Abhinav Bindra, who fetched India its first-ever individual Olympic gold medal, was the lone winner here among the nine Indian shooters, including Athens silver medallist Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore at the Beijing Shooting Range.
