Jitu Rai, Gold medal winner of previous World Cup & one of the most decorated Shooter in India is still finding his form as he finished at low 32nd position in the qualifications of 50m Pistol Event with a score of 551 points.

He still have a chance to prove his excellency in 10m Air Pistol event which is scheduled on 22nd May, Monday. Jitu will be accompanied by Anmol & Nanjappa Prakash in the same event.

Ravi kumar is the lone Indian who qualified for the finals in 10m Air Rifle event & missed out of an medal by finishing at 5th position.

Apart from Jitu Rai, Heena Sidhu will carry the Indian hopes too in 10m Air Pistol Event which is scheduled on May 23, Tuesday.  Former World No.1 Heena Sidhu is in some promising form & can be a medal contender on a given day.

Chain Singh, National Holder in 50m Rifle 3 positions is a strong contender for a medal too.
