Shovon finishes 20th, Shirin improves timing
Mohammad Chowdhury Shovon finished 20th in the 50m rifle prone men's qualification round of the 2018 Commonwealth Games at Belmont Shooting Centre in Gold Coast, Australia Tuesday. Shirin Akter, the country's fastest woman for the fifth time in a row now, improved her timing from the previous edition but still finished last at 36th in round one of the women's 200m sprint, clocking 26.17s. The Rio de Janeiro Olympian took 26.41s to finish her run in the same event in Glasgow 2014. Meanwhile, the only medal winning athlete from Bangladesh so far, Abdullah Hel Baki didn't start the event despite being named as one of the entries due to lack of preparation.

Baki told Dhaka Tribune through social media Tuesday, "It was planned before. I didn't practise for this event for a single day. I concentrated solely on the 10m air rifle. So my coach (Klavs Christensen) advised me not to participate." Shovon, the South Asian Games’ gold medalist in 2010, scored a total of 604.5 points and was unable to finish among the top eight, thus failing to qualify for the final. Shovon is scheduled to conclude his campaign with the men's 50m rifle 3 positions event Saturday while Baki will return home Monday.
