2012 London Olympics: Houston's Glenn Eller Misses Cut In Men's Double Trap

Houston native Glenn Eller failed to qualify for the finals of the men's shooting double trap event in London on Thursday, finishing 22nd with 126 points, far behind the qualifying field for the finals. Eller won gold in the same event during the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. The highest American finish in the field was Josh Richmond, who placed 16th with 131 points.

The London Olympic Games are Eller's fourth, after debuting in 2000 with a 12th place finish in Sydney before and then finishing 17th in Athens before winning the gold in '08. Eller is also currently serving in the U.S. military as part of Army's Marksmanship Unit in Fort Benning, Georgia.

Great Brittian's Peter Wilson led the field with a 143 point finish. Wilson also holds the current world record with 148 points.
