In the men’s double trap event, Ronjan Singh Sodhi retained his 10th spot. Sodhi was world No.1 in June after he won gold in Belgrade World Cup.

“I am satisfied to move up few places in the latest world rankings and will try and do the same in the other two events (50-metre three position and prone) as well,” said Narang.

“I will now target to break into the top-3 bracket through the World Cups in 2009. I am going to take the 10m air rifle event a little easy now and work harder on the 50m three position and prone events for a year,” he said.
