Vitalina Batsarashkina wins 1st gold for Russia, setting Olympic RECORD in women’s 10m pistol event in Tokyo

Batsarashkina set a record of 240.3 points, with a 0.9 lead over Kostadinova, winning her first Olympic gold in Tokyo – five years after taking silver at the Rio Games.

While China’s Jiang bested the qualifying rounds (with an Olympic record of her own of 587 points), she was eventually eliminated with a bronze.

On Saturday, another Russian shooter, Anastasiia Galashina, claimed silver in a tense women’s 10-meter air rifle event.

Tokyo Olympics entered its second day on Sunday, with multiple medal events in archery, cycling, diving, fencing, judo, skateboarding, weightlifting and swimming.
