A gold-medallist at the Commonwealth Games, 15-year-old Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala produced a below-par performance to finish without a medal in the men’s 25m rapid fire air pistol on Saturday.

The top six qualified for the finals where China’s Zhaonan Yao won the gold with a Games record of 34. Silver also went to China with Junmin Lin shooting 33 and the bronze went to South Korea’s Kim Junhong, who shot 29.
