Now moving to the highs and the lows of August 8 from the Indian perspective.It was a story of missed chances for India at the Olympic Games here as star shooter Abhinav Bindra barely missed a medal and the men's hockey team drooped to a 1-2 loss to Germany by yielding a goal with three seconds left in the match on the third day of competitions. This is how the Rio Olympics results for the day can be summarized.

There were setbacks in different events as well as the trap shooting pair of Manavjit Singh Sandhu and Kynan Chenai couldn't enhance their opening day performance and failed to qualify all requirements for the Olympics men's trap semifinals, closing down at sixteenth and nineteenth separately on the second and last day of qualification.

Women archer Laxmirani Majhi additionally set up a worse than average performance in the individual elimination round and bowed out without a battle against Alexandra Longova of Slovakia. Majhi just couldn't raise her level of marksmanship and lost the challenge 1-7, losing three sets and drawing another.

Bindra the only individual Olympic gold medalist in 2008 at Beijing in the same men's 10m air rifle event, lost a pressure filled shoot-off against Ukrainian marksman S Kulish after the two were tied third at 163.8 in the race to achieve the medal round.

The Indian did not demonstrate any feeling after the shocking moment as he strolled off in the wake of losing the one-shot end against Kulish who went ahead to win the silver medal with 204.6 behind gold medalist Niccolo Campriani (206.1) of Italy.

The Zirakpur-based shooter had completed seventh in the qualifying round to make the cut for the finals while his countryman and London Olympics bronze medalist Gagan Narang was off track the imprint and passed up a major opportunity of the finals subsequent to completing at a humble 23rd position. Bindra scored 625.7 to book a billet in the finals. This is the only event Bindra is contending in the current Games. Actually, the Indian ace shooter, in his fifth and last appearance in Olympics, was at one phase standing second in the eight-man last in which one shooter gets dispensed with bit by bit prompting the last two men remaining in the go head to head for the gold after the twentieth shot.

This was the shooting India team show on the particular day. So, all in all it was a bit disappointing day for the Indian contingent at the games. CRB Tech reviews hopes that India will soon open its medal tally in the Rio Olympic games 2016.
