Raghunath shot a total of 595 - Monday and narrowly missed the finals, where eight top shooters qualify to vie for the top honours. This was the Indian's best performance in the World Cup.

Gagan Narang of India disappointed as he finished 27th with a score of 592 -, a below par score by his own standards.

'I stretched a muscle in my right knee while I was doing physical fitness training three days before the start of the World Cup. So I could not lock my right knee at all while shooting and was in too much pain,' he said.

Sanjeev Rajput finished 49th with a score of 587 - while Junior World Champion Navnath Fartade managed a score of 583 - in the Minimum Qualifying Score - event.

In the women's category, ace shooter Anjali Bhagwat finished 12th with a score of 395 - while Tejaswini Sawant was 19th with a score of 394 -.
