Bindra disappoints in Baku

Baku, June 23 (IANS) Rio-bound shooters Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang on Thursday finished sixth and seventh respectively in the 10 meter Air Rifle final at the ongoing International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup here.

Narang, who had missed the 10m event in the Munich World Cup last month due to a heel injury, fired 123.1 points while Bindra finished with a disappointing 102.3 to be at the penultimate spot in the final.

Nepejchal Filip of the Czech Republic secured 206.8 points to clinch the gold medal while Iran’s Bagheri Hossein and Sergy Rikhter of Israel fired 206.2 and 184.6 to settle for the silver and bronze respectively.

This was Bindra’s last World Cup before he retires from the sport on August 8, when the shooting events at the upcoming Rio Olympics conclude.
