We will be back with the update for the finals and medal winners. 

...

Indian fans can take a lot of heart from this performance from the shooters. We have come terribly close to winning medals but have lacked the clinical ability. 

...

India's 2016 Rio Olympics shooting bid is over here and we will be returning home with no medals. This has to be a huge disappointment. Probably the biggest in recent times. 

...

Chain Singh position at the moment - 23rd 
This is really heart-wrenching stuff. 

...

Chain Singh finishes his last round with 95/100 and a total score of 1169/1200

...

Chain finished on 1169 while the 8th placed shooter scored 1174. 5 points, that is all.

...

This has been another disappointing day of shooting. It is the same story again, not being able to perform in the final round.

...

Gagan Narang has finished with a score of 1162 and sits on 33rd position. 

...

IT IS OFFICIALLY OVER!!! Chain Singh is out and India will finish with no medals in shooting at Rio 2016

...

Chain Singh slips down further and moves to 22nd position. This has been a shocking fall after such a strong position. Chain Singh must be gutted. 

...

He has four shots remaining and Chain cannot qualify even if he hits 4 10s, at least that is what it looks like. 

...

The top 8 at the moment:
Kamenskiy - 1184
Brodmeier - 1177
Bryhn - 1177
Zhu - 1176
Raynaud - 1176
Vlasov - 1176
Link - 1174
Campriani - 1174

...

NOOOOOOOO!!!! Chain Singh shoots an 8 and slips down to 21 position. I hate to be a prophet of doom but Chain is almost as good as out. 

...

He is on 1123 with five shots remaining. His score can maximum be 1173. Would that be enough for Chain Singh,? Do not think so 

...

Chain Singh shoots a 9 and is 39/40 from the final round of Standing. He needs six 10s. Still would depend on others. 

...

The sixth placed shooter has scored 1174/1200. Looks unlikely now. 

...

Andre Link of Germany now sits in 8th spot! 1174 at the moment and he is ahead of Italy's Campriani.

...

Two 10s to begin the last round and 20/20 for Chain Singh here. He is in 14th position. 

...

The top six shooters have finished their rounds so far. Fedor in 6th place has a score of 1176.

...

He is on 1074/100 and a 100 would take him to 1174. Still looks tough. Chain Singh needs a 100 and nothing else. 

...

1057 so far for Lochbihler. The Swiss shooter is in 8th place and has sore 78 out of 80 in his third round from the standing position.

...

Campriani now falls to 9th! The final position is held by Lochbihler of Switzerland

...

He finishes his third round on 96/100 and is now in 16th position. The qualification looks highly unlikely for the Indian barring a 100 in the last round. 

...

Shoots a 10 to take his score to 87/90 from the third round. He needs to get 10s and nothing else. Chain Singh is India's last hope of getting a medal in shooting.

...

Campriani of Italy moves back into 8th
