Shooters fail in Munich

Bangladeshi shooters put up dismal performances on the opening day of the ISSF World Cup in both the men's and women's 10m air rifle events in Munich, Germany yesterday.

Though Bangladesh's shooters produced good results in the same event of the Islamic Solidarity Games last week, they failed to carry that momentum as Solidarity Games' silver medallist Rabbi Hasan Munna and the country's top shooter Abdullahel Baki failed to turn up following late departures from Bangladesh.

In the absence of the duo, Risalatul Islam (623.5), Arnab Sarkar (620.4) and Robiul Islam (617) took part in 10m air rifle event and finished 50th, 71st and 87th respectively among 127 participants while veteran Suraiya Akter finished 102nd among 122 participants with a score of 407.6 points.
