In shooting, the 32-year-old Sodhi, considered a strong medal hope, misfired after a sound start to finish way down at the 11th spot of the qualification contest at the Royal Artillery Barracks.
The two-time World Cup champion had an excellent first round where he was the joint top-scorer with 48.
However, he started dropping clays in the second and third rounds where he collected 44 and 42 points, respectively, to make an exit.
The top six shooters qualified for the final round, though defending champion Walton Eller of the US, 2008 silver medallist Francesco D'Aniello and bronze medallist Hu Binyuan also failed to make the cut.
