Seán Baldwin has finished 18th in the mixed R6-50m rifle prone-SH1.

Baldwin recorded a personal best score of 585, with only the top eight making the final, that was the end of proceedings for the Irishman.

UAE's Abdulla Sultan Alaryani won gold with a final total of 694.8. Spain's Juan Antonio Saavedra Reinaldo won silver, and Britain's Matthew Skelhon took bronze.

Baldwin said: "I'm happy with that performance in tricky conditions.

"I was aiming for 590 as I reckoned that would be the qualifying mark for the final, but I am satisfied with the PB and I am well set up for my final competition tomorrow."
