World Cup: Men fail to qualify for trap final

Acapulco (Mexico), March 20 

Kynan Chenai and Prithviraj Tondaiman shot 123 and 121, respectively, but failed to make it to the final round of the men’s trap event at the Shotgun World Cup. Chenai shot 24 in the last qualification round, which put him in a six-way shoot-off for the sixth and final qualification spot. He became the second to bow out in the shoot-off, finishing 10th. Tondaiman, despite three rounds of a perfect 25, finished 35th.

James Willet won the gold. The Australian, who made the transition from double trap to trap a year ago, had shot a perfect 125 to top the qualification field. The two Olympics quotas went to silver winner Zaher Ahmed of Egypt and bronze winner Yu Haicheng of China. — PTI
