Raj started off brilliantly notching the second highest score (104.4) of the first series but poor shooting in the next five series saw her drop dramatically down the pecking order. Lajjakumari’s best shooting came in the third series notching a score of 104.2 but her performance in the other series meant she was never in the reckoning.
With scores of below 100 in the second and sixth series, Tejaswini was the poorest of Indian shooters, finishing seven places from the bottom. Narantuya Chuluunbadrakh of Mongolia took the gold while Malaysia’s Nur Suryani Binti Taibi Mohamed took silver. Bitna Eum of South Korea took home the bronze.
