Rising Czech star Filip Nepejchal and Briton Seonaid Mcintosh took Day 1 honours, winning the men's and women's 50m rifle 3 positions (3P) gold medals respectively.

The seasoned Rajput, who has already secured an Olympic quota, shot 1153 to claim the ninth spot in a low-scoring qualification round. Polish shooter Tomasz Bartnik took the eighth and final qualification spot with an effort of 1154.

Sanjeev would have made it through even if he had tied with Tomasz, given he had two more inner 10s than the shooter from Poland.

Akhil Sheoran, the second Indian to have made the cut in the prestigious International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) season-ending World Cup Finals showpiece, finished 13th with a score of 1147.

In the women's 3P, India's Anjum Moudgil also finished outside the top eight final qualifying spots, shooting a score of 1147 to finish in 13th position overall.
