Indian shooters flopped on a windy day at the Aoti Shooting range with the country’s first woman world champion Tejaswini Sawant, Gagan Narang and Vijay Kumar ending up way off target in their respective events at the Asian Games. Vijay could not sustain the form he showed yesterday in the men’s 25m rapid fire pistol, finishing 17th in his pet event. Narang finished a lowly 24th with 587 points in the prone event, Tejaswini shot 588 to end up.
