He did not reach the points to fight for the medals. Peruvian Marko Carrillo finished his participation in the 25-meter rapid-fire pistol this Sunday at the Osaka Shooting Range, failing to qualify for the final of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
According to the regulations, Marko Carrillo had to be among the six best in the general classification to advance to the round. On his first day of competition, he added 288 points from 300 possible shots, divided into three series: 99 points (8 seconds), 92 points, (6 seconds) and 97 (4 seconds). Thus, in the general table it was in position 12.
In his last presentation he registered 284 points from 300 possible shots, divided into three series: 96 points (8 seconds), 97 points, (6 seconds) and 91 (4 seconds). With this, his final position in the classification was 18, out of 26 participants.
“The last day was not as expected. Of the 12 series (in general) I have had three in which I did not go as expected,” said Marko Carrillo to the national highlights after his presentation. Likewise, he pointed out ending with “annoyance” and “discomfort” because he came to these Olympic Games specialized in the 25-meter rapid-fire pistol modality.
Tokyo 2020 was Marko Carrillo’s second time at the Olympic Games, having made his debut at Rio 2016.
