Spare a thought for Pellielo, he was this close to nabbing a gold medal but a silver medal is not all that bad!

...

The Croatian makes him pay! and he has won it! Brillaint stuff all around from Glasnovic! The first medal of the Rio Olympics for Croatia!

...

Glasnovic and Pellielo cannot be separated still. 3-3, this is like a penalty shoot-out! And Pellielo misses! Oh dear!

...

No one has missed a shot yet. This is getting tense!

...

The scores are level and one shot remains! Pellielo hits it but Glasnovic also makes it 13-13! Shoot-off again!

...

Glasnovic MISSES! Pellielo has a chance of making Glasnovic pay!

...

Their are still 3 more shots to go! Glasnovic leads by one point!

...

Pellielo misses AGAIN! Glasnovic is now on top! 

...

And Pellielo misses as well, Glasnovic makes him pay. They are back on equal terms!

...

Glasnovic misses! WOW! This was not expected! Pellielo now leads by one point!

...

5/5 for Pellielo so far. Makes it 6/6!

...

3 for 3 from each shooter. You cannot set them apart!

...

Here we go! Two shots down and no one has missed!

...

The shooters are led out by loud cheers from the spectators. 15 shots to decide who wins the gold!

...

Well, it is time for the main event! As Kostelecky misses his final shot, it will be a battle between Pellielo and Glasnovic.

...

And LING DOES IT! A Bronze medal it is for him! Great Britain get a medal!

...

After 12 tagrets, Ling leads Kostelecky by two points. Ling just needs to get one point to guarantee a medal. He hits his target but so does Kostelekcy. He needs one more!

...

Ling seems to be getting into his groove, another target, another hit! Kostelecky misses AGAIN! This does not look good for the Czech who now trailed ling by 3!

...

Kostelecky is having a poor time of it. He has missed three out of seven shots but he does make his next one. 4/8

...
...

Ling leads Kostelecky by five shots to four at the moment. The Brit could be on his way to a bronze medal!

...

Kostelecky has also missed his second shot but makes it up by hitting the third! 2-2 now as Ling hits his third target as well.

...

Ling misses his first shot in the Bronze medal playoff and Kostelecky makes Ling pay. The Czech leads 1-0.

...

Ling does hit his fourth target. The pressure is on Kamal but he misses! Ling will make it to the Bronze medal playoff.

...

Ling MISSES! Kamar can take the lead if he hits his third target but he too misses! 2-2 it stays!

...

Ling starts off with a perfect hit! He makes it two out of two. Kamar has hit the target once and is looking to tie with Ling. And he does it. 2-2 is the score!

...

Each shooter has five targets to hit. The one with the greatest number of hits wins! 

...

It is a shootout between Edward Ling and Ahmed Kamar to reach the Bronze medal playoff.

...

The question is who will fight it out for the Bronze? Kostelecky will be in the bronze medal playoff!

...

No denying Glasnovic! He scores 15 out of 15! The man is on fire!

...

An important shot for Pellielo. He takes his time and HITS IT! He will be playing in the final with Glasnovic.

...

Glasnovic has been incredible and makes it 14/14! He will be in the final for the gold medal!

...

The two top shooters would play for the gold medal! 2 more shots left for Pellielo , one more shot and he makes it 13/14!

...

Kostelecky misses and Ling misses TOO! The pressure is getting to them!

...

Pellielo shoots and make it 12/13 but all eyes are on Glasnovic! He does not miss!

...

Edward Ling is not behind with a 11/13. Fabbrizi is kicking it up and has made it 9/13 but he has a lot of work to do

...

12 out of 12 for Glasnovic, he cannot miss! Kostelecky now hits 11/12!

...

Glasnovic still has to miss a shot! He has hit all 11 targets!

...

Fabbrizi has missed FOUR of his EIGHT targets! That is not a good sign!

...

7/8 for Edward Ling but 7/7 from Glasnovic!

...

Massimo Fabbrizi and Ahmed Kamar are the ones who sit fifth and sixth and could be knocked out of the event!

...

Giovanni Pellielo joins them on 5 but he too has missed one shot.

...

Edward Ling joins Glasnovic on 5 but the Brit has missed one while Glasnovic is still perfect!

...

Things are getting a little tricky here, only Glasnovic has hit all five targets so far! Everyone else has missed one!

...

And no it is not TWO HOURS away. The event has begun! 

...
...

There was more disappointment for the Indian contingent as Abhinav Bindra finished 4th in the 10m Air Rifle event. He lost in a shootout!

...

It certainly was a drama filled event with Manavjit starting off so well but his second round of 25 shots really let him down.
