Summary

Wang Yifu had been the best Chinese pistol shooter, winning gold in this event in 1992 and 2004 and silver in 1996 and 2000. But he had now been surpassed by Pang Wei, who was World Champion in 2006, and was coached by Wang. In Beijing Pang won the gold medal easily, leading the qualifying round and posting the highest final round score to win by 3.7 points. Korea’s Jin Jong-O added a silver medal to the one he had won in 2004 in the free pistol. The battle for the bronze medal was a tightly contested affair between Kim Jong-Su of DPR Korea (North Korea) and the United States' Jason Turner. Kim nailed the bronze medal with a strong finish, shooting 10.3 and 10.0 for his last two shots, which gave him a final score of 683.0.
