Egyptian shooter Ahmed Kamar missed out on the chance of competing for a bronze medal after finishing fifth in the trap men's contest at the Rio Olympic Games on Monday.

Having earlier qualified for the semis, he lost a duel against Britain's Edward Ling. He failed to reach the final after managing 12 successful hits out of 15.
After the achievement of Egyptian youngster Afaf El-Hodhod,who finished fifth in the 10-m shooting range finals a day earlier, Kamar finished fourth in the qualifiers to reach the semi-final. 
Kamar could have competed for a medal had he finished among the top four.
Fellow shooter Abdel-Aziz Mehelba, however, was not equally lucky, having waved the Trap's Men Qualifiers goodbye after finishing 24th with a 112 recorded hit.
Earlier in the day, controversial shooter Hamada Talaat - who was involved in the debatable Saudi flag saga - had been eliminated after finishing in 38th position at the 10m air rifle shooting range.
