Summary

China’s Guo Wenjun was the defending champion and led the qualifiers with 388 points, trailed by Ukrainian Olena Kostevych and France’s Celine Goberville with 387. Those three would win the medals with Guo defending her title although it was a back-and-forth battle. Kostevych and Goberville went ahead after the second shot of the final, and Goberville seemed to have gold in hand after a 10.4 eighth shot. Guo went ahead on the ninth shot of the final with 10.8, and when Goberville scored only 8.8 on her final shot, Guo had her second gold in the event.

Kostevych and Goberville tied for second and in the shoot-off, Goberville won silver with a 10.6 to Kostevych’s 9.7. Kostevych had won bronze in this event in 2004 and would also win the bronze medal in London in the sporting pistol. The best score in the final was 101.0 by Russian Lyubov Yaskevich, which moved her up from tied for fifth after qualifying, but she just missed the medals in fourth. Guo’s gold medal made her only the second woman to defend an Olympic shooting title, after Bulgaria’s Mariya Grozdeva in the 2000-04 sporting pistol event.
