Shotgun World Championship: Indian teams fail to make cut for final round

The Olympian team of Kynan Chenai and Shagun Chowdhary accumulated a total of 132, which was not enough to qualify for the knock-out round.

Prithviraj Tondaiman, a joint national record holder, could not make the final of the mixed trap with his partner Seema Tomar.   -  KAMESH SRINIVASan

Prithviraj Tondaiman was in fine form in the mixed trap, as he shot three rounds of 24 for 72 out of 75, but together with Seema Tomar (57) could not make the final in the World Shotgun Championship in Lonato Del Garda, Italy, on Thursday.

The other Indian team, the Olympian pair of Kynan Chenai (69) and Shagun Chowdhary (63) fared better but a total of 132 proved inadequate to make the cut for the knock-out.

In junior mixed trap, Vivaan Kapoor (71) wound up with a perfect round but together with Kirti Gupta (59) could only reach a total of 130. The other Indian pair was below par with a total of 117, through Vishwa Kundu (64) and Preeeti Rajak (53).
