City shooter Kynan in line to make final

Kynan Chenai New Delhi: India’s Prithviraj Tondaiman shot two perfect rounds of 25, while teammate Kynan Chenai missed just one bird to stay on course for the men’s trap finals at the ISSF Shotgun World Cup being held at Acapulco, Mexico.

Monday was the first day of qualifying in the men’s trap event.

Prithviraj was in a group of seven shooters, in a field of 107, who shot a perfect 50 after the first two rounds.

Chenai shot 49, while the seasoned Manavjit Sandhu secured a score of 46.

Three more rounds of qualifying will take place on Tuesday before the top six make it to the finals. There are two Tokyo 2020 quota places up for grabs in this event.

However, the women’s trap team bowed out of the International Shooting Sport Federation event.

Italy’s former Olympic and world champion Jessica Rossi picked the first gold medal, also claiming a Tokyo 2020 quota place for her country in the process as she won the women’s trap with a final round score of 45.
