...

Narang's next event - the 50m Rifle 3 qualification - will take place on 14th August at 5.30 pm. Hope he has better luck in that!

...

Remember, Narang still has a chance to win a medal this Olympics - in the 50m Rifle 3 event. For Chain Singh, however, this is the end of his Rio journey.

...

And there's the confirmation! Both Gagan Narang and Chain Singh have failed to qualify for the 50m rifle prone finals, with Narang finishing at No. 13 and Chain at No. 36. Disappointing!

...

Gagan Narang is on 13th position while Chain Singh is on 36th. 

...

Sergey Kamenskiy is holding the fort at the No. 1 position, with a score of 629. His Russian compatriot Kirill Grigoryan is at No. 2, with 628.9, while Jonghyun Kim of South Korea rounds out the top 3 with 628.1.

...

Why does this keep happening to Indian shooters ???? They promise so much in the first few rounds and then bottle up. This is heartbreaking. 

...

This was a rather steep collapse by Narang, after being perched so comfortably at the half-way stage. Where did it go wrong for him? Scores of 103, 104 and 102.4 in the last 3 series are not up to the mark in such a high-profile competition.

...

He has finished with a score of 623.1 - 104.7, 104.4, 104.6, 103.0, 104.0 and 102.4

...

Really poor from Gagan Narang in the last two rounds and he has been knocked out. 

...

Narang scored 102.4 in his last series, which is WAY below his average. That was a rather poor finish by the Indian veteran, and it seems his nerves may have cost him a place in the finals.

...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Gagan Narang has been knocked out ladies and gentlemen. 

...

This looks like a lost cause now. Narang is down to No. 14, and seems to be on his way out. 

...

10.3 in the next shot and he is in 9th position. THIS IS NERVE WRECKING

...

Two shots remaining, can Gagan do it?

...

This is nail-biting stuff, and Narang has just 2 shots more to regain his place in the top 8. Can he do it?

...

His total score is 82.2 from the final round and Gagan is in 9th position. HOLD ON TO YOUR HORSES FRIENDS

...

Narang isn't being able to summon his best in this last series, and he's still on the very edge of the qualification zone. He REALLY needs to find a new gear in these last 4  shots.

...

He moves up to 9th position now. Other shooters need to faulter. Indians must be saying PLEASE PLEASE

...

Gagan Narang is in 10th position now

...

Narang shot a 9.5 in his fifth attempt of this last series, which is well below par. Is the pressure affecting him?

...

NOOOOOOOO!!! He slips down to 9th after his next shot with a 10.2. He has 5 shots to go. A couple of 10.8s are required.
