Rio Olympics 2016: Heena Sindhu fails to qualify (10m Air Pistol)

Blog by: Suryakant Tripathi.

Heena Sidhu’s disappointment from her 10m Air Pistol event continued into the 25m Pistol event where she failed to deliver in the precision stage that undid her later rapid stage’s good work. She shot 95, 95 and 96 in the precision series rounds for a total score of 286.

In the rapid stage, she improved considerably three straight series of 97 but that was too little after a disappointing start.

With other shooters to finish, she stood 18th in the rankings and was out of contention to qualify for the Final match.
