New Delhi : Ace Indian shooters Abhinav Bindra, Gagan Narang and Kynan Chenai narrowly missed out on medals after qualifying for the finals of their respective events at the ISSF World Cup in Baku on Thursday. Narang, who had missed the 10m event in the Munich World Cup last month due to a heel injury, fired 123.1 points while Bindra finished with a disappointing 102.3 to be at the penultimate spot in the final.

Nepejchal Filip of the Czech Republic secured 206.8 points to clinch the gold medal while Iran's Bagheri Hossein and Sergy Rikhter of Israel fired 206.2 and 184.6 to settle for the silver and bronze respectively. This was Bindra's last World Cup before he retires from the sport on August 8, when the shooting events at the upcoming Rio Olympics conclude.
