Larnaca (Cyprus):  Indian shooters failed to qualify for the finals of men's double trap event at the ISSF Shotgun World Cup with Ankur Mittal emerging as the best performer after an 11th place finish in the qualification here today.

Mittal aggregated 138 over five rounds, while Dahiya Sangram ended 30th with a total of 132, and Mohammad Asab shot 131 to finish 33rd.

Mittal had two rounds of 27, including the first one, and that did not help his cause. He shot 28 in the last two rounds, but they were not enough to earn himself a berth among the top 6 shooters, entitled to shoot in the finals.

The minimum qualification score on the day was 141 while Italy's Antonino Barilla headed the qualifying list with a score of 146.

The men's and women's trap are the two events left in the tournament, which will conclude with the men's trap finals on Sunday.
