Trivia: Why do some shooters wear a patch over one eye?

Shooters usually wear a patch when their dominant eye is opposite to their dominant hand. It is difficult to make an accurate shot if one's dominant eye and hand are not on the same side. Closing one eye while shooting would reduce accuracy, hence some athletes prefer to use an eye patch.

Hello folks! Welcome to Sportskeeda's coverage of the 10m Air Pistol men's qualification event!

India will be represented in this category by  Deepak Kumar and Divyansh Singh Panwar, who will be eager to break India's medal duck in the shooting discipline at Tokyo Olympics so far. Six Indian shooters have been in action so far, and only one Indian made it to the final.

Not a surprise by any means, Saurabh Chaudhary - topped the charts in the qualifying rounds of the air pistol men's qualification to storm into the final 8. 

However, the youngster bucked under pressure and finished a lowly 7th, in what came as a rude shock to ardent Indian sports fans who had penned down Saurabh as a 'sure-shot' contender for an Olympic medal this time around.

Saurabh's compatriot Abhishek Verma made a late surge to strengthen his case of a Top 8 finish, but two sub-10 shots put him out of contention. We also had the Women's 10m Air Rifle qualifiers earlier yesterday, where World No.1, Elavenil Valarivan and Apurvi Chandela failed to make the cut to the summit clash either.

Today morning saw Manu Bakher and Yashaswini Deswal at the 10m Air Pistol Women's Qualifications. Unfortunately, both of them crashed out in the qualifiers.

Will Deepak Kumar and Divyansh Singh Panwar finally be able to break India's shooting jinx? Stay with us as we find out.
