Shooter Singhraj did well in the qualification round. He finished 6th with a total of 569 points in the qualifications. He registered himself in the final with that performance and he did amazing in the final as well. Singhraj’s score at the end of this Men’s P1 – 10m air pistol shooting final event was 216.8, with the Indian para shooter comfortably securing third place. However, another Indian named Manish Narwal was competing in the same event along with Singhraj but couldn’t manage to win a medal for India. It was a bit shocking for the Indian para pistol shooter (Manish Narwal) as well as the Indian fans as Manish Narwal was in the first place after the qualification round ended. The Indians were hoping for a medal from him after seeing his qualification round performance but unfortunately, it couldn’t happen. Manish Narwal finished 7th in the final event.
