Abdullah Hel Baki followed the footsteps of Shakil Ahmed in the ISSF World Cup as the two-time Commonwealth Games silver medallist put a below-par performance to finish 85th out of 144 participants in 10m air rifle event in Munich yesterday.
Baki even failed to replicate his performance from February’s Delhi ISSF World Cup after scoring 621.7 points, 7.8 points less than the eighth qualifier for the final round.
Baki had scored 624.7 points in Delhi. The 29-year-old shooter had, however, registered his personal best of 624.8 points in Munich World Cup in 2016.
Though Baki failed to improve his performance, his teammate Rabbi Hasan Munna produced his best at senior level by scoring 623.1 points which helped him finish in 72nd position. Munna, however, had scored 624.6 points at junior level during Asian Shooting Competition in 2016.
Robiul Hasan, however, produced his worst-ever performance by scoring 610.5 points to finish 128th in the competition.
