LIVE updates from Elavenil Valarivan, Apurvi Chandela women's 10m air rifle Olympics 2021 shooting


06:40 (IST)24 JUL 2021

That's a wrap from us folks. Sportskeeda will be bringing you dedicated LIVE blogs for all Indians in action so make sure you don't miss out. The hockey match is currently going on while medal prospect Mirabai Chanu will be in action later in the morning.

Ranking hardly matters on the D-Day! Young Elavenil's performance is just the perfect testimonial. The World No.1 ended her aspirations for an individual Olympic medal she could only score 626.5 points. Second time Olympian Apurvi wasn't up to her usual best as she put on an unexpected score 621.9 points. The two markswomen finished 16th and 36th respectively to bow out from the 10m air rifle women's event. It's the end of the road for Apurvi while Elavenil still has one more event to compete in - 10m air rifle mixed event on Tuesday!

632.9 is the new  Olympic Qualification 10m air rifle women's event! Neither of Elavenil nor Apurvi could break through to the final. Not the start the Indian supporters hoped for!

06:19 (IST)24 JUL 2021

Context: The cut off is 628.5. Elavenil shot 626.5. Really, just the finest of margins that make or break Olympians.

05:53 (IST)24 JUL 2021
