Veteran Rajput managed the third place with 1,158 points while Chain Singh also qualified for the eight-man final of the 3 Positions event on the final day of the competition. In the initial stage of the game, Singh was in the third place and raised hopes of an Indian clean sweep but overtaken by Australian Dane Sampson.
Sampson, who won the men's Rifle Prone gold earlier in the competition, held on to secure the bronze medal. Birendeep Sodhi was the only Indian to qualify for the six-man final round of the men’s trap event at the shotgun ranges.
