Manish had earlier won the qualifying round, while Singhraj finished sixth. Narwal and Chinese Lu Xiaolong finished joint first with a total of 575 points. Singaraja finished sixth in the 60-shot qualifying cycle with 569 points. Narwal scored in six rounds of 10 shots with scores of 96, 95, 92, 98, 97, and 97 in the low-scoring qualifying round. Singaraja started with 95 and then added scores of 97, 93, 95, 92 and 97 in the next five rounds.
Because handguns are only carried with one hand, SH1 category athletes have a disability that affects an arm or leg, such as an amputation or spinal injury. The men’s 10 air pistol competition is classified as P1. Some shooters compete while seated, while others compete standing, as mandated by the rules.
