Israel’s Olympic air rifle hopeful Rikhter falls short

Sergy Rikhter, Israel’s great Olympic hope in the men’s 10m air rifle, finishes a disappointing 14th place today with 623.8 points.

Richter was expected to finish in the top 8 among 50 contenders and move to the next round, but failed to make the cut.

In 2012, Richter was one point away from making the championship round. He was European champion in 2013, the Ynet news site reports.
