Seen as a strong medal contender for India, Rathore shot a series of 43,45,43,131 to finish 12th among 19 shooters.
Struggling for form in the run-up to the Games, the army shooter's score of 131 was just not enough in a qualifying round that saw Italian Francesco D Aniello finish at the top of the heap with a total of 141.
