New Delhi: India’s Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore missed out on a berth for the Athens Olympics when he finished third in the double trap event of the shot gun World Cup on Monday.
Ahmed Alkamatoum of UAE, who bagged the gold in the event at the Dr Karni Singh shooting ranges, booked his place in the next year’s games with 46 points.
Despite putting up a fine show, Rathore had to be content with the bronze medal accumulating 44 points in the final behind Australian Adam Villa who scored 45. Italian Daniele Dispigno, who had also 44 points, was pushed to the fourth spot when Rathore won the tie-breaker 11-10. (PTI)
