Tejaswini, a gold medallist at the recently concluded Commonwealth Games, finished 12th after shooting 1167 in qualification.

Anna Ilana of Ukraine, who grabbed the eighth and final qualifying spot with a score of 1168, had 57 inner 10s against her name to Tejaswini's 61.

China won the gold in the event to go top of the medals tally with a total of four golds.

China and Russia continued to dominate the competition, accounting for seven of the 13 gold medals won so far with the remaining six being distributed equally among hosts Korea, Australia, Italy, Slovakia, Finland and Belarus.

Of the 39 total medals, Russia and China have won a total of 12 among them and will look to increase that tally with two finals left to play over the two remaining days of competition.

India remains in 10th place with Shahzar Rizvi winning a silver in the men's 10m air pistol earlier in the competition.
