Well that is all ladies and gentlemen for Day 1 of Men's 25m Rapid Fire Pistol Qualifying. Do join us tomorrow for live coverage and till then follow other events from 2016 Rio Olympics at Sportskeeda. This is your commentator Vikram Mahendra signing off. Adios. 

...

1. Christian Reitz (Germany) - 296 
2. Jean Quiquampoix (France) - 293
3. Pavlo Korostylov (Ukraine) - 293
4. Fusheng Zhang (China) - 292
5. Ricardo Mazzetti (Italy) - 292
6. Olivier Geis (Germany) - 291

Gurpreet Singh - 10th 

...

Chapman is done with his second round now and seems to be going down hill

...

David Chapman is the only shooter left to complete his rounds. He has 147 points and is on second. 

...

Gurpreet Singh position - 11th

...

Jorge Llames seems to be building his own house at the top as he in second place after 196 from two rounds. Gurpreet had 100 and 99. That third round will hurt him real bad. 

...

The difference between Gurpreet Singh and Ricardo Mazzetti, the 6th place shooter, is 3 points. But do not be fooled, that is a huge margin. 

...

Spain and Ukraine must be feeling left out among Economic powerhouses there. 

...

The top six shooters are all from different countries - Germany, Australia, Japan, France, Ukraine, Spain, China

...

The first two rounds were not a big problem for Gurpreet but the 90 in the third round is going to hurt him badly here. Thin margins. 

...

Chapman starts with a 98 and falls into second place. Gurpreet has now gone down to the 13th position. 

...

Gurpreet Singh has been pushed down to 12th place. This is not looking too good for the Indian. 

...

David Chapman from USA has scored 50/50 in his first series till now and is on top. 

...

And we are underway!!!!

...

The last set of shooters will begin their first stage shortly and it will be important from the Indian perspective to see what happens. 

...

Just to recap of what has happened till now - 20 out of the 26 shooters have shot in till now and India's Gurpreet Singh is in 9th with a score of 289. 

...

If one looks at it closely, the margins in shooting are so fine and even a micro miscalculation can destroy everything. Athletes practice for four years and it comes down to one second. Winning an Olympic medal can never be overstated. 

...

The last six shooters are set to shoot for the day now. Let's hope Gurpreet finishes in top 10 so that he has some sort of a shot tomorrow. 

...

Our neighbour shooter Ghulam Mustafa Bashir has scored 287 and finished his first stage. 

...

These are the scores of the top six right now - 296, 293, 293, 292, 292, 291

...

Sanderson Keith from USA has scored 290 from his first stage (99, 94, 97) . 

...

Gurpreet has moved up to 9th position now. 

...

Zhang Fusheng has 245 till now - 99, 99, 47. That is some shooting from the Asian. 

...

The Chinese seem to be on fire in this Olympics and they are killing it in all events.
