Wei fails to make shooting finals

Singapore’s Jasmine Ser Xiang Wei failed to advance to the final round of the women’s 50m rifle 3 positions at the Rio Olympic Games on Thursday.

Wei would notch up 568 points at the Olympic Shooting Centre, only enough for 34th out of 37 athletes.

Only the top eight qualified, with Petra Zublasing leading the pack.

The Italian would set an Olympic Record 589 points, three ahead of Swiss shooter Nina Christen, but when it came to the final it was Germany’s Barbara Engleder who snatched the gold medal, with Chinese duo Binbin Zhang and Li Du taking silver and bronze respectively.
