Tokyo: India's shooting campaign at Tokyo Olympics came to an end on Monday after shooters Sanjeev Rajput and Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar failed to qualify for the men's 50m rifle 3 positions final, here.

Olympic debutant Aishwary Pratap Singh Tomar finished 21st in the qualifying rounds with an aggregate of 1167 and veteran Sanjeev Rajput in his third Olympics appearance, could only finish 32nd with a total of 1157.

The top eight shooters go through to the 50m rifle 3 positions final, which was the final shooting event at the Olympics.

In 50m rifle 3 positions, competitors shoot at the target from three different positions - kneeling, prone and standing. The scores from each of the three positions are then added up for the final score.

Indian shooters had a disastrous outing at 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Of the 15 Indian shooters, only Saurabh Chaudhary made the final of his event - finishing seventh in the men’s 10m air pistol.

With this, Indian shooters failed to win a medal for a second successive Olympics. (UNI)
