·1 min read

Manu Bhaker and Yashaswini Singh Deswal missed out on making the 10m Air Pistol final at the Tokyo Olympics on Sunday. Bhaker finished 12th with a score of 575-14x and Deswal a rank lower with a score of 574-11x. Only the top eight qualify for the final.

Needing an inner 10 with her final shot to qualify for the final, Bhaker scored 8 which denied her the opportunity into the medal match.

Celina Goberville of France, who finished eighth, to qualify, posted a score of 577-15x which was only marginally better than what Bhaker mustered in the end. At the other end, Ranxin Jiang of China finished top of the qualifying list with 587-23x for a Qualifying Olympic Record.
