Indian women disappoint

New Delhi: Indian women put up below-par performances as none of them could qualify for the finals of the 25 metres sports pistol event at the ISSF World Cup in Guangzhou, China.

Compatriot Sushma Rana, who had teamed up with Saroja to win the pairs gold medal in the recent Melbourne Commonwealth Games, was also no better in her individual endeavour.
