Day 1 of the games-Emmons and Pang join the gold medal club

Shooting Day 1 Review: Emmons and Pang join the gold medal club



(BEIJING, August 9) -- The outstanding performances of the Czech Republic's Katerina Emmons and China's Pang Wei were the highlights of the first day of the Olympic Shooting competition.

Day 1 of the games-Emmons and Pang join the gold medal club

Emmons and Pang won gold medals in the Women's 10m Air Rifle and Men's 10m Air Pistol respectively.

Emmons coolly broke the Olympic Record for the Qualification Round of the Women's 10m Air Rifle by shooting a perfect 400. The previous record was 399, achieved by Russian Lioubov Galkina at Athens 2004.

Emmons continued on her merry way by breaking the Olympic Record for the Final Round of the Women's 10m Air Rifle. Her final round score was 103.5, two-fifths of a point higher than the next best score by silver medalist Galkina. The bronze medal was won by Croatia's Snjezana Pejcic who shot a final score of 500.9.

Emmons' final score of 503.5 eclipsed the previous record of 502.0 set by China's Du Li at Athens 2004.

Pang's gold medal somewhat erased China's disappointment at the performance of Du in the Women's 10m Air Rifle. The Athens gold medalist seemingly collapsed under pressure in the final round and could only manage a final round score of 100.6, which was the second worst score out of the eight shooters who participated in the final round.

Pang's performance was the complete opposite of Du's. Despite being only 22 years old, Pang reveled in a field bereft of the world's top-ranking shooters and skipped to an easy victory with a final score of 688.2.
