Jitu Rai Misses World Cup Final by a Point, Tejaswini by Two


NRAI Delhi 23 May 2017 , Heena Sidhu, Sanjeev Rajput to Lead Indian Challenge on Concluding Day

New Delhi, May 22, 2017: India’s Jitu Rai, missed making the Final of the Men’s 10m Air Pistol by a point on competition day five of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup (Rifle/Pistol)being held at the Olympic Shooting Range in Munich, Germany. Tejaswini Sawant in the Women’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions event, also fought hard but eventually finished two points behind the Final qualifying mark. Jitu finished 10th overall while Tejaswini secured 15th position.

Among his five World Cup medals in this event, only once has Jitu shot higher than today’s 581 to qualify for the finals. He was in the hunt till the last four shots, but two 9s in the 57th and 58th shots probably proved crucial in the end. Turkey’s TugrulOzer was the 8th to qualify with a score 582 but with significantly lesser number of inner 10s than Jitu.

Jitu’s teammates in the event, fellow Olympian Prakash Nanjappa and youngster Anmol Jain both finished with identical scores of 576and in 34th and 36th positions respectively. Gold in the event went to 19-year old Ukranian youngster PavloKorostylov, who landed his first ever World Cup Gold in the senior ranks. Japanese former World Champion Tomoyoki Matsuda won Silver and Korean legend Jongoh Jin won Bronze.

In the Women’s Rifle 3 Positions, Tejaswini shot a high of 199 out of 200 in the prone position, but even that was not enough- her qualification round score of 584, falling short of 586, scores recorded by as many as three final qualifiers, among them eventual Gold medalist Croatian SnjezanaPejcic and German Bronze medalist Jolyn Beer. The Silver in the event also went to the host country’s SelinaGschwandtner. The other Indians in the fray, N. Gaayathri finished 38th with a score of 579 while Elizabeth Susan Koshy shot 576 to end in 55th place.

On Sunday, India’s challenge in the two medal events of the day- both for men, the 50m Rifle Prone and the 25m Rapid Fire Pistol was also restricted to the qualifying stages.

In the former, SushilGhaley shot 622.7 to finish 31st, Chain Singh 622.1 for 37th place and Sanjeev Rajput managed 616.6 to end in 65th position overall. In the latter, Neeraj Kumar was the best Indian finisher in 18th place shooting a score of 578. Harpreet Singh shot a point less to secure 21st spot while Olympian Gurpreet Singh ended in 31st position with a score of 572.

Tuesday will be the fifth and final competition day of the ISFF World Cup (Rifle/Pistol) stage four in Munich and will feature the Women’s 10m Air Pistol and Men’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions finals. Former World number one HeenaSidhu and three time Olympian Sanjeev Rajput will lead India’s challenge in them respectively.

Reacting to the developments, Mr. Raninder Singh said, “This is a recognition of India’s growing reputation in the sport of shooting and on the behalf of the entire federation, I would like to thank the ISSF for bestowing upon us the honour to host the World Cup Finals for the very first time. The credit goes to our champion shooters first of all, the Sports Authority of India and the Government of India for supporting us throughout in the growth of the sport in the country and the entire team at NRAI for their untiring efforts in raising the profile of the sport in the country. We hope to put our best foot forward in organizing these marquee events. I would also like to thank the President personally for awarding me with the ‘ISSF President Button’. It is a personal confidence booster for myself”

Mr. Raninder Singh took over as the President of NRAI in December 2010. Since then the sport of Shooting has grown in stature in the country.
