Tokyo Olympics LIVE – SAURBH Chaudhary Finishes 7th: Youngster Saurabh Chaudhary failed to rise to the challenge in the finals of the men’s 10m air rifle event as he finished seventh at the Tokyo Olympics.

Saurabh shot a total of 137.4 in the finals and as a result, he finished at the seventh spot. Riding high from his qualification round, the youngster would have been hopeful of winning a medal, but the final turned out to be a rather disappointing outing.

Saurabh’s second 10 shots added up to 98 and hence he bettered his spot to 9th. In the third series, Saurabh once again put on a cumulative score of 98, and his rank rose further to fifth.

In the fourth series, Saurabh shot a perfect 10 and his rank got better to second, and he was going all guns blazing. In the fifth and sixth, Saurabh shot 98 and 97 and he finished with a total score of 586.
