Summary

The favorite was Russia’s Nataliya Paderina who was the 2006 World Champion and led the qualifying with an Olympic record 391. But she faltered in the final, shooting only 98.1, the third highest final score, and was passed by China’s Guo Wenjun, who led the final round with 102.3 to win the gold medal. The bronze medal was won by the remarkable Georgian shooter, Nino Salukvadze. She had first competed at the Olympics in 1988, winning gold with the sport pistol and silver with the air pistol. She had since competed in both events at every Olympics thru 2008, usually making the finals, although this was only her third Olympic medal, and her first since 1988. Her feat of winning a medal 20 years after her previous one was a record for women at the Olympics.
