We will be back tomorrow to provide updates on the final round of qualifying. See you then!

...

Can our shooters or athletes handle the pressure? They do seem to be cracking under the pressure in almost every sport at the Olympics.

...

Another day, another disappointing performance by the Indian shooters. We have shown glimpses of quality but that level of consistency is missing from our shooters.

...

Only the top six would qualify for the finals. The job is tough for Mairaj, all we can do is hope for the best.

...

Tomorrow there will be 50 more shots for each shooter. The top scoring shooters out of 125 will be making it into the next round. Mairaj is on 72 and the maximum he can score is 122.

...

The shocking fact is that Mairaj looked good for a 74 and he ended up missing two shots in the final set! That is not good!

...

Qualification does seem to be tough at the moment for Mairaj. In 2012, 120 was enough to qualify for the next round. Mairaj will have to score at least 49 tomorrow and hope many others miss. 

...

Mairaj is not out at the moment but yet again, an Indian shooter will have to be perfect in the second day of qualifying. What a way to end his round!

...

From a third place to now fighting it out for a top 10 spot! One shot has made all the difference for Mairaj! He finishes 10th but there are other shooters at the moment still taking their shots!

...

This was not expected, Mairaj gets his composure back and is on 22 now! 71 for the round in total!

...

He falls down to 11th! 70 for him at the moment! This is not good!

...

OH DEAR! Mairaj misses!

...

This might not be a medal round but if Mairaj continues with this form, no, we shouldn't jinx it. Just keep shooting like this!

...

TWO MORE INTO THE SCORE! 19 out of 19 for Mairaj!

...

Eight more shots to go for Mairaj and he should be well placed for tomorrow. 

...

And it does not affect him! 66 for the Indian shooter!

...

Still waiting for Mairaj to take up his next shot. Let's hope the wait does not break his stride.

...

Just 11 more shots to go for Mairaj. Can he finish with a bang?

...

Mairaj may not be able to catch Svensson today but if he closes out with a 25, it should give him a lot of confidence for the second round of qualifying tomorrow.

...

The hot shooting continues, Mairaj moves onto 63! 

...

He has 14 more shots to go and hopefully, Mairaj will make it 74.

...

Mairaj can also score a maximum of 74 in this round. He cannot afford to miss today.

...

The shooters from 2nd to 5th all have shot a 74!

...

Mairaj now moves on to 60 while Nilsson completes his round and has made a 74!

...

Nilsson, who is above Mairaj, hasn't missed in this round either and is looking to close out on a 25. That would take his score to 74!
