Summary

Korea’s Kim Jang-Mi had won this event at the 2010 Youth Olympics, and her 298 score in the qualifying precision section and her 591 qualifier gave her a five-point lead over Thailand’s Tanyaporn Prucksakorn. Two-time gold medalist Mariya Grozdeva of Bulgaria (2000-04) placed ninth after losing a shoot-off for the final two final spots. In the final Kim posted only the fifth highest score but she was so far ahead that she could not be easily caught, and won the gold medal with 792.4. China’s [Chen Ying] had easily the best final round with 206.4 for 791.4 and the silver medal. She actually took the lead briefly in the final round, but Kim came back to overtake her.

Ukrainian Olena Kostevych won bronze, as she had done in the 10 m air pistol, winning the medal only on her final two shots, with a 10.3 and 10.8, to move ahead of Serbia’s Žorana Arunović. Prucksakorn shot poorly in the final, with the worst score, and dropped to eighth place. Czech shooter [Lenka Marusková] was world-ranked #1 coming into the Olympics but placed only 13th in qualifying.
