Olympics Men`s 50m Rifle Prone Qualification: Narang crashes out, Karmakar in finalsZeenews Sports Bureau

Narang crashes out; Karmakar qualifies for Final

Joydeep Karmakar, who was tied joint 4th with the nine more shooters, qualifies for the final. He shot 51.6 in the shoot-off to finish seventh best.

The biggest disappointment, however, is that Gagan Narang has crashed out of the event after finishing at 18th.

Gagan struggles, Karmakar shines

Overall, Gagan started well but in the end it was not good shooting by Gagan Narang. He shot 593 out of 600. He is at 18th. It's all over for him.

Gagan's scores in the firts 6 series are: 98, 100, 100, 98, 97, 100=Total 593 out of 600

But it was very good show by not-so-famous Karmakar. He came up with two perfect 100 in the last two series to end 595 out of 100. He is the one of the 9 shooters who are tied in 4th place. He has to take part in shoot-off which will determine whether he will qualify for the finals.

Karmakar's scores in the firts 6 series are: 98, 98,100, 98, 100, 100= Total 595 out of 600

Good Start for Narang and Karmakar

Narang's scores in the firts 5 series are 98, 100, 100 and 98.

Karmakar's scores in the firts 5 series are 98, 98, 100 and 98.

Decent Starts

Both Gangan Narang and Joydeep Karmakar made decent starts to their campaign.

Gagan shoots perfect 100 each in the sencond and third series. He shot 98 in the first series.

Karmakar, on the other hand, scored 99 ad 98 out of 200.

Ace Indian shooter Gagan Narang, who won a bronze medal in the ongoing London Games on the men`s 10m air rifle event on MOnday, starts his campaign for another medal in a short while from now. He competes in the Men`s 50m Rifle Prone qualification round.

Narang on Monday opened India`s account in the London Olympic Games by clinching the bronze medal in the men`s 10m air rifle event here.

Narang shot 103.1 in a gripping ten-shot finals for an aggregate of 701.1 after scoring 598 in the qualifying round in which also he stood third.

Joydeep Karmakar in actiona, too

Another Indian shooter, Joydeep Karmakar, is also competing in the same event.
