However, Vadim scored 624.2 points, beating a personal record and the record of Uzbekistan.
“It was the last chance for us to win at least one license for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, but all is not lost,” said Jaloliddin Atabullaev, the secretary general of the Federation of shooting sports in Uzbekistan.
“We asked the International Shooting Sport Federation to allocate a place for Vadim Skorovarov. In our view, he demonstrated a high level of performance and deserves to participate in the Olympics.”
