Summary

This was the first event completed in the Rio Olympics, and it became a very close battle between the two Chinese favorites, defending champion [Yi Siling], the gold medalist from 2004 and 2008 [Du Li], and the 19-year old first-time Olympian [Virginia “Ginny” Thrasher]. Hailing from Springfield, Virginia, Thrasher wanted to be a figure skater in her youth, but switched to sport shooting in 2011 after going hunting with her grandfather. She qualified for the final with a margin of only 0.5 points, but impressed in the final and took gold with 19 ten-pointers out of 20 shots for an average of 10.4 per shot. Defending Champion Yi Siling had to settle for bronze behind her team mate Du Li. One of the strong favorites, Serbian [Andrea Arsović], number one in the world rankings, was a victim in the qualification round, finishing 26th out of 51 participants.
