Heena Sidhu gunning for an improvement in the 25m Pistol event

Heena Sidhu is looking to improve on her poor 10m air pistol qualifying performance when she returns to the shooting range but this time in the 25m Pistol event. Heena, who had finished 12th at the London Olympics failed to recover after making a poor start to finish 14th out of 44 shooters in the qualifying stage.
Now in the 25m Pistol event, she’d get another bite at the cherry to qualify and one that she’d want to make the most of in her second Olympics. The field in the 25m Pistol event comprises of 40 shooters.
Heena, who had bagged a gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, began with a poor 94 in the first series. She improved slightly in the second series to score 95 but still remained outside the requisite top 8. Then she scored 96 and 95 in the next two series to bow out of competition.

India is still looking for the first medal from Rio 2016 Olympics and Sidhu’s fellow shooter Abhinav Bindra came close to clinching that on Monday but fell out in a shootout and lost by a 0.5 margin.

Heena comes from a family of shooters with her family into gun business and now that she’s married, her husband and father-in-law both are former India shooters and have won medals for the country – a feat that Heena would be keen to take to the grandest scale.
