South Korea`s Kim takes shooting gold in 25m pistol

London: South Korea`s Kim Jangmi shot her way to gold in the 25-metre pistol event Wednesday, edging out China`s Ying Chen despite a disappointing showing in the final.

Kim`s final score of 201.4 was only fifth-best in a competitive final, but her six-point advantage from qualifying was enough to see the world record holder to the gold medal with a score of 792.4.

Ying, who won the gold in Beijing four years ago with an Olympic record score, took silver with a total score of 791.4 after shooting 206.4 in the final.

Ukraine`s Olena Kostevych took her second bronze medal of the Olympics with a score of 788.6, following her earlier third place in the 10m air pistol Sunday.
