The top three shooters in each event with Minimum Travel Scores (MTS) have been selected for individual & team events.
The shooters with 4th rank and with the same average score have also been selected.The Women’s 50M Rifle 3 Positions (3PW) is the only event in which India will have two shooters instead of the minimum three allowed, as the third-ranked Shooter (Apurvi Chandela) could not satisfy the MTS requirements.
