Poor scores on the fifth and sixth meant he would slip to seventh after 10 shots. He improved to sixth after his 12th shot. But German Maximillian Ulbrich outgunned him on the 13th and 14th shots as the Indian bowed out.

Tokyo Olympian Elavenil also took the eighth and final qualifying spot in women’s 10m air rifle with a score of 630.8. The Indians who missed out on a top-eight spot on the day were Rudrankksh Patil among the men and Ramita Jindal and Mehuli Ghosh among women.
