Thank you for staying with us in this event but the day has not ended for Indians as we have table tennis and weightlifting coming up.

FINAL RESULTS OF MEN's 10m AIR PISTOL

1.  Xuan Vinh Hoang (Vietnam) - Gold (202.5)
2.  Felipe Almeida Wu (Brazil) - Silver (202.1)
3.  Pang Wei (China) - Bronze (180.4)

...

The reception for the Brazilian shooter is amazing and rightly so, he has come out of nowhere to deliver a silver for his country. Amazing scenes. 

...

Incredible from Hoang! He shoots a 10.7 for his final shot and ensures he gets the gold. Felipe Wu wins a silver but that shot under all that pressure from the Vietnamese Hoang will be a talking point for a long time!

...

Final shot here and it all comes down to this. Wu shoots a 10.1 and Hoang shoots a 10.7. WHAT A SHOT by the Vietnamese shooter. PHENOMENAL. He has been superb. Gold medal for Vietnam. What a final!!!!!

...

THE CROWD IS IN SPLITS AS WU EDGES CLOSER. He has a total score of 192 and is leading with one shot remaining. 

...

Incredible, Wu leapfrogs Hoang! 192 for the Brazlian and 191.8 for Hoang! One shot to go!

...

The top qualifier and Beijing gold medalist Pang Wei finishes with bronze. 

...

The Brazilian shoots a 9.8 and Hoang is heading towards gold here. Pang Wei, in the meanwhile, has finished third and will take home the Bronze medal. 

...

This is ending towards a photo finish and PANG WEI with a 10.6. Cool as ICE. Brilliant stuff. 

...

Juraj Tuzinsky is the next out and the medalists are decided. Vietnam, Brazil and China

...

 Xuan Vinh Hoang is still in the lead and the Brazilian Almeida is looking solid for a silver medal. He has a score of 151.3

...

Juraj Tuzinsky has to hit the mark or he would have to deal with the agony of finishing fourth, just outside the medals. Let's see what he can do. And he scores a 9.9. It seems the Slovakian Tuzinsky will be the next man to leave.

...

A shocking result, Jongoh Jin has been eliminated from the event! He won gold in 2012 but will have to go back empty-handed after scoring 139.8.

...

Jin Jongoh is the next shooter to be eliminated from the Men's 10m Air Pistol finals. 

...

Xuan Vinh Hoang is in first place at the moment and Brazilian Almeda is in second. Home advantage is certainly showing here. 

...

That is an 8.7 from Pang Wei, what a twist in the tale. High quality final going on at the moment. Who will keep their nerves and win?

...

Pang Wei scores a 8.7! Yikes, that is certainly not good for the Chinese star. This could be the end of this final for him. Who would have thought that would happen an hour ago?

...

Giuseppe Giordana takes his leave and the Italian is the next man eliminated. The person who could be knocked out next is Jongoh Jin and is 0.8 points adrift of Pang Wei! This is going to be a tight call as to which Asian makes it through. 

...

Guiseppe Giordano of Italy has been eliminated and only five men remain now. Will Pang Wei keep his nerve. 

...

All those who were asking about the top ranked qualifier Pang Wei? He is fourth with 110.3

...

It still is the Vietnamese Hoang with 102.2 who leads the event with Felipe Wu of Brazil in second and Juraj Tuzinsky in third place.

...
...

Next person to be eliminated is Vladmir Gontcharov from Russia. He finishes with a total score of 98.9

...

Vladimir Gontcharov is the next man eliminated with a score of 98.9!

...

The Olympic champion could be on his way out, Jongoh Jin is sixth at the moment.

...

This has been an anti-climax for Indian fans as their best medal hope in Rio Olympics has returned empty handed in the event that was slated to win him silverware. 

...

It is a three-way tie between Hoang, Tuzinsky and Wu for the first place! 

...

NOOOOOOOOOO!!! It is over and so are India's medal hopes from this event. He is out with a total score of 78.7. Big stage fright.
