India's Manavjit Singh Sandhu and Kynan Chenai will be in action on Monday on Day 2 of the Trap Shooting qualifiers at the Olympic Shooting Centre in Rio de Janeiro. The event takes place just after the men's 10m air rifle qualification round, which features the heavyweights from the country - Abhinav Bindra and Gagan Narang.

The 39-year-old Sandhu will know that he has to use his experience in the best way possible to make himself qualify to the semifinals of the event. On Day 1 of the men's trap shooting qualifiers, the sports shooter from Amritsar finished 17th after posting scores of 23, 23, 22 in three rounds.

Chenai, 25, on the other hand, finished 19th in the event qualifiers on Day 1 with a total score of 67 over three rounds. On Monday, the duo, alongside the competitors from the other nations, will take part in two more rounds of 25 targets each.

India haven't won any medal so far in the Rio 2016 Olympics, and the shooters, especially, are expected to lead the race when it comes to winning medals. Jitu Rai, one of the greatest medal prospects for India this year, couldn't make any mark in the 10m air pistol event, while top female shooter Heena Sidhu also made a disappointing exit from the women's 10m air pistol event.

The onus is on the big guns Bindra, Narang and Sandhu now. Three-time Olympian Sandhu has won a lot of medals in numerous events, but an Olympic medal is still missing from his kitty.

Day 2: Men's trap shooting qualification round is scheduled to start at 9.30 a.m. local time (6 p.m. IST, 1.30 p.m. BST) on Aug. 8. The semifinals and finals of the event is scheduled for around 12 a.m. IST (7:30 p.m. BST, 2:30 a.m. EST).
