Here is the complete report of the qualifying event

...

And that is that from this phase of the event. Jingjing Zhang tops the leaderboard with 592! The only shooter to hit a score above 590 from the field!

...

Anna Korakaki finishes her round with a score of 584. A bitter end for the Greek shooter, 297 and 287 from her two rounds. 

...

Zhang has created an Olympic Record with her score of 592! She beats the score set in London 2012 by Jangmi Kim, who posted 591!

...

Monika Karsch of Germany sneaks into third with a score of 583. Just to compare, Heena scored 576.

...

Ekaterina Korshunova moves up to second. She is still behind Zhang though. The Russian has scored a 99 and a 48 so far in this round. 

...

Heena though stays in 18th. She cannot do anything to help her ranking though. The 26-year-old has completed all her shots. 

...

Korakaki's first round scores were 100, 99, 98. She starts this round with a 93!. The Greek falls down to third place!

...

Wow! This was not expected, Korakaki only shoots a 93! That World Record is gone! 

...

The second batch fo shooters are yet to take their first shots in this round. Korakaki is the one to keep an eye on.

...

Only the top 8 will qualify and with Heena being 18th. There is no chance she will make it into the next round.

...

The wait is excruciating, not only has Heena been knocked out more or less, we are still waiting for Korakaki to shoot! 

...

And Atanu has done it! We are still waiting for Korakaki but there is something for the Indians to cheer!
