Tokyo: After the first day of the men’s skeet shooting qualification event at the Tokyo Olympics, Indian shooters Angad Vir Singh Bajwa and Mairaj Ahmad Khan were ranked 11th and 25th, respectively.

The final two rounds will be completed on Monday with the top six shooters qualifying for the final scheduled later in the day. Khan performed admirably in the first round, hitting all of his targets while Bajwa missed one, scoring 25 and 24 respectively.

In the second round, Khan missed one target from station 4 and scored 24 while Bajwa hit all 25 targets. Khan missed thrice in the third round while Bajwa shot 24 targets and missed one from station 5.

With a single point differentiating Bajwa and Finland’s Eetu Kallioinen, the Indian will be having a good chance of making it to the final whereas Khan needs to overcome a four-point deficit, which will be difficult. Vincent Hancock of the United States and Frenchman Eric Delaunay are joint leaders shooting a perfect 75 in three rounds.
