Chinese shooter Qian Yang narrowly beats Russia’s Anastasiia Galashina & sets Olympic RECORD in battle for first Tokyo gold medal

The Chinese shooter set a new Olympic record of 251.8 points, with a small lead over the Russian, who scored 251.1. Galashina’s last shot was also her worst, at a strikingly low 8.9, which allowed Yang to seal her victory with a mediocre but sufficient enough 9.8.

Christen was eliminated with a score of 230.6, but nevertheless took the first bronze for Switzerland.

The women’s 10-meter air rifle shooting match-up was the first medal event of the Tokyo Olympics, with more opportunities in women’s weightlifting, men’s cycling, archery, fencing, judo and taekwondo set for later on Saturday.
