Shooter Heena Sidhu missed out of the race to the women’s 10 metres Air Pistol finals event at the 31st Rio Olympic Games after finishing 14th in the qualifications at the Olympic Shooting Centre on Sunday.

Heena could only manage 380 with 13 inner 10s after the completion of the four series. A late surge by the Ludhiana shooter too was not enough as she totalled 95 cumulative points in the fourth series to move to 14th.

Heena never really looked in the hunt as she started the first series with 94 cumulative points before dropping to 29th with 95 points in the second.

The third series witnessed Heena coming back to the 20th spot with some great shots, only to lose momentum towards the end, which fetched her 96 cumulative points.

Starting the fourth series at the 25th spot, Heena failed to put up a consistent show, shooting 9 and 10 in her first two shots before failing to hit another 10.

Her last three shots fetched a 9, 10 and another 10 taking her toll to 95 cumulative points ending her hopes.

Russian Vitalina Batsarashkina, Ekaterina Korshunova secured the top two positions at the qualification stage with respective scores of 390 with 14 inner 10s and 387 with 14 inner 10s.

Greek shooter Anna Kokarakaki finished third scoring 387 with 12 inner 10s.
