Tokyo Olympics: Disappointing end to Rahi Sarnobat and Manu Bhaker’s campaign | Tokyo Olympics News – Times of India

July 31, 2021

Pistol shooters’ campaign ended in disappointment when Manu Bhaker and Rahi Sarnobat failed to enter the women’s 25m sports pistol final on Friday. Rahi, who specializes in the event, shot a poor 286 in the rapid, her strength, to total 573 and finish 32nd overall.
On the other hand, Manu, who had a good precision round with 292 on Thursday, too fumbled in the rapid stage, scoring 290. She managed 582 in the qualification to finish 15th on the table. Top-8 shooters made it to the final.
Manu shot 96 in the first 10 attempts, which included a few 9s and an 8. Likewise, Rahi too struggled with consistency and shot an 8, 7 and even 6 to blow away her chances.
“Manu was shooting well, but she didn’t plan her timings well. I think she needs to work on it in the coming days,” coach Ronak Pandit said.
Russian shooter Vitalina Batsarashkina completed a double after clinching gold on Friday. Both Vitalina and Korean shooter Minjung Kim shot a new Olympic record of 38 in the final and were tied for first position. The Russian won the shoot-off.
Vitalina had earlier clinched gold in the 10m air pistol event. The bronze went to China’ 19-year-old Jiaruixuan Xiao, who shot 29.
