Samresh Jung's woeful form in the Olympics continued and he failed to make the 50m pistol finals of the shooting competition, finishing a disappointing 42nd in the qualification round in Beijing on Tuesday.

Jung, a multiple gold medallist from the 2006 Commonwealth Games, shot a series of 88,92,91,86,90,93 to average 9.0 that ruled him out of contention.

Jung had earlier missed the cut for the 10m air pistol event finals.

Meanwhile, China's Zongliang Tan qualified first for the event, shooting a series of 96,94,93,96,90,96 to average 9.417.
