Here are the Top 6 finishes:

1.Christian Reitz
2.Zhang Fusheng
3.Quiaquampoix Jean
4.Mazzetti Riccardo
5.Li Yuehong
6.Pupo Leuris

...

Ricardo Mazzetti has finished in 4th place and Gurpreet has finished 7th. It cant get closer than that. This is really shattering. 

...

IT IS OVER!!! GURPREET SINGH is OUT

...

49/50 from Mazzetti in the first half of the last round. He is looking good and Gurpreet is set to be on his way out. 

...

Now, for Gurpreet Singh to qualify, Mazetti needs to shoot less than 93 in the last round. That is not likely to happen. 

...

MAZZETTI shoots 99 in the second round and moves to fourth place. 

...

Good start by Mazzetti in second round 49/50 in the first half. Holding tight in 5th place. This is going to be heartbreaking for Gurpreet if he misses out by two points. 

...

Italian Mazzetti holds the reins of Gurpreet Singh's qualification. 

...

Gurpreet Singh scored 97/100 in the first round as well. 

...

Mazzetti scores 97/100 in the first round. 

...

Good news for Indian fans, Oliver Geis has shot 46/50 in his first five shots. Mazzetti still in amazing touch though. 

...

Mazzetti - 49/50 till now
Geis - 46/50 till now

...

They have begun!!!!

...

A list of Indian shooters who came close but could not make the cut in Rio - Abhinav Bindra, Jitu Rai, Gagan Narang, Manavjit Singh Sandhu. Will Gurpreet Singh join the list? Looks like that. 

...

Stay tuned ladies and gentlemen, Mazzetti and Geis will be up anytime soon. 

...

To all Indian fans, pray that Mazzetti and Geis shoot horribly bad and enable Gurpreet to qualify. 

...

Gurpreet's chances are really bleak and hanging by a thread. He needed to score at least two more to be in that top six spot. That 90 in the third round yesterday will keep playing in his mind. 

...

We have the last set of shooters remaining. 

...

Leuris Pupo from Cuba has occupied the sixth spot and it all depends on how Mazzetti and Oliver Geis shoot. 

...

Just to remind viewers, it is not over yet. Ricardo Mazzetti is yet to shoot and should he fail miserably, Gurpreet can still qualify. 

...

He shoots 49/50 in his last shots and goes up to 8th position. 581 in total, In all likelihood, Gurpreet is out. 

...

Last five shots and nothing less than 50/50 will do for Gurpreet. 

...

Gurpreet has a total score of 532 and is in 9th position. His chances are bleak. 

...

Not a good start from Gurpreet as shoots 48/50 in the first five shots of final round. 

...

An 8th position and should he finish with that, Gurpreet will look back at that 90 he shot in the third round and regret. 

...

It looks really tough at the moment but if he can shoot a 99 or 100 in the last, Gurpreet will qualify.

...

BRILLIANT!!!!!! 50/50 He manages a 98 in the second round and pushes up to 8th position.

...

The next five shots coming up for Gurpreet Singh here and he needs to step up. 

...

48/50 in the second round so far from Gurpreet, he needs 50/50 now. He is in 10th position. 

...

He has to avoid a 90 like yesterday and get consistent. Christian Reiz has shot 100 in the first round and 50/50 in the second till now. BOMBSHELL

...

He needs to shoot near perfect in the next two rounds. Gurpreet needs at least 197/200 in the next two rounds. 

...

NOOOOOO!!!!! That is not good as Gurpreet shoots a 97 in his first round and it takes him down to ninth place. 

...

The second half of his first series coming up. Fingers crossed for Indians here. 

...

Can he score a 100 like yesterday in the first series? Would take a lot of pressure off and give him a lot of confidence. 

...

Gurpreet has climbed up into 8th spot and this is a good start. Come on Gurpreet. 

...

BOOM 50/50 from him in the first five shot. 

...

GURPREET HAS BEGUNN!!!!!!!

...

Without wanting to jinx things for India, Mairaj Ahmad Khan is shooting really well and is in a qualification spot. 

...

Trying to imagine what must be going on in Gurpreet Singh's mind at the moment. Will he be focused on just the event or he would be thinking about India's performance in shooting in general. Trust the Army man to be focused. He is trained for that. 

...

The next set of shooters have also finished here and now 14 shooters remain in the fray. Since Gurpreet shot first yesterday, he is likely to shoot last today in my opinion. 

...

LI Yuehong, who is in fourth position at the moment, scored 290 yesterday and 294 today. This means if Gurpreet can score 295 today, it will be sure shot qualification. 

...

Gurpreet Singh will need to shoot at least 295/294 today if he needs to make it to the final six. 

...

Just to throw in a bit of perspective, only two of the top six shooters right now have completed second rounds and both have shot significantly better than their first round. 

...

He is in 10th position right now and should he score better than yesterday, his chances are great. 

...

For all our Indian friends getting impatient, Gurpreet Singh is waiting in the wings for his turn.
