Yang Wei signs People’s Republic of China’s 3rd Gold medal in Gabala

It’s the sixth overall medal for the Chinese National Team, who still leads the provisional medal table of the ISSF World Cup Stage 5 in Gabala (AZE). Japan’s Matsuda Tomoyuki won Silver, while Ukraine’s Oleh Omelchuk finished 3rd.

The third one’s the good one for People’s Republic of China’s Pistol shooter Yang Wei, who nailed his best career placement in the men’s 10m Air Pistol final in Gabala, after placing 5th and 54th in the two previous World Cup stages. 

The Chinese 31-year-old dominated the second half of the match, building a comfortable lead with a strong 10.3-10.3 combo, and maintaining the top of the table until the final shot. He finished with 240.1 points, claiming the first World Cup medal of his career. 

Yang’s medal is the third Gold won by the People’s Republic of China in Gabala, along with two Silvers and one Bronze.
