Paralympics 2016: Naresh Kumar Sharma fails to qualify for 10m air rifle standing finals

Rio de Janeiro: India's Naresh Kumar Sharma finished a penultimate 21st in the men's 10 metre air rifle standing SH1 qualification round to crash out of the 2016 Rio Paralympics at Rio de Janeiro on Thursday.

Sharma shot a cumulative 583 in the four series to end his campaign at the Olympic Shooting Range.

In the first series, Sharma shot 98.1 but failed to better it in the second with a shot of 95.6. The 44-year-old came back well in the third series to fire 99.2 and another 103.3 in the fourth series but that was not enough to book a place in the final.

South Korea's Jin Ho Park topped the qualification round with a cumulative 625.3 which is a Paralympic record while serbia's Laslo Suranji fired 620.7 to finish second and United Arab Emirates' Abdulla Sultan Alaryani finished third after shooting 619.5.
