Shooter Bailey looks ahead after missing out on qualification
Issy Bailey will turn her focus to her final shooting event after missing out on qualification in the P2 women’s 10m air pistol SH1.
The 27-year-old finished 18th in qualifying, her score of 468 points leaving her 89 points off the final qualification place.
Sareh Javanmardi of Iran set a new qualification Paralympic record with a score of 572, before going on to claim gold with a new world record score.
Bailey, from Cirencester, started slowly in qualification, shooting an 83 in the first round, adding scores of 88, 91, 89 and 92, before a 25 in the final round ended any hopes she had of qualifying.
I look forward to the opportunity to shoot again at this beautiful range.
The two-time Paralympian will now focus on the P3 mixed 25m pistol SH1 event, with qualification beginning on Thursday.
Bailey said: “I’ve had a tough time this year physically and mentally battling back from a shoulder injury and today I just didn’t have enough in what is such an intense sport.
“I have another match on Thursday and I look forward to the opportunity to shoot again at this beautiful range.”
