Olympics: Shooter Shagun out of London Games
Shagun finished a lowly 20th out of 22 competitors at the Royal Artillery Barracks.

London: Shooter Shagun Chowdhary's campaign at the London Olympics ended on a disappointing note as she failed to qualify for the finals of the women's trap event after finishing 20th, here on Saturday.

Shagun finished a lowly 20th out of 22 competitors at the Royal Artillery Barracks.

The 29-year-old from Jaipur started off reasonably well by shooting 23 out of 25, but a 17 in the second series saw her slip down. A 21 in the third round gave her a total of 61, which was never going to be enough.

Jessica Rossi of Italy topped the qualification round on her way to a world record score of 75. She shot 25 in all the series.

Slovakia's Zuzana Stefechekova came second with 73 while Suzanne Balogh of Australia had to be content with a third-place finish after firing 72 in the qualifiers.

Shagun was the first woman shooter from India to qualify for the trap event of the Olympic Games.
