Anish finishes 5th at shooting World Cup

New Delhi, Feb 26 (IANS) Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala finished a disappointing fifth in the men’s rapid fire pistol category at the ISSF World Cup, here on Tuesday.

In the six-man final, the 16-year-old had a steady start before losing his way to crash out. Anish was fourth after three hits each in the opening two series. He had a perfect five in the next series that propelled him to third.

The deafening applause perhaps got to him as he could only manage one hit in the next series to go down to the bottom two. But he survived by beating Christian Bessaguet of France in the elimination shoot-off.

While the Frenchman hit three shots on target, Anish four. Battling for survival, the teenager had another poor show in the next series as he could only hit the target twice.
