1: Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra in finals, Gagan Narang fails to qualify
On 8 August, shooter Abhinav Bindra made it to the finals of the men's 10m Air Rifle event.

Beijing Olympics gold-medallist Bindra finished seventh in the qualifying round to make the cut.

While, Bindra added another feather to his hat, London Olympics bronze-medallist Gagan Narang lost out after finishing on the 23rd position on day three of the Olympic Games in Rio.

Bindra scored 625.7 in his fifth and last outing in the Olympics this year. Italy's Campriani Niccolo topped the qualification with a score of 630.2, which is an Olympic record.

Bindra, who crashed to a 16th place finish in 2012 London, scored 104.3, 104.4, 105.9, 103.8, 102.1 and 105.2.

His last series of 105.2 proved to be the clincher for Bindra, who raised his game when it mattered the most.

The final is slated later today.

Heena Sidhu, who bowed out of the 10m air pistol in the qualification round, will be seen in action on Tuesday in 25m pistol.
