Mongolian on target in shoot-off

[SHOOTING] Mongolian Munkzul Tsogbadrah edged out two of her rivals in a nail-biting shoot-off to land the women's 25m air pistol gold in the ISSF World Cup at the Hua Mark Sports Complex shooting range yesterday.

Three shooters - Tsogbadrah, compatriot Gundegmaa Otryad, a former champion in 2004, and Japan's Michiko Fukushima - were tied at 783.3 and went into a shoot-off to decide the champion. The 26-year-old from Ulan Bator kept a cool head and fired 50.7 to run away with the gold medal, leaving the third-ranked Otryad, who shot 0.01 behind to be content with the second place. Fukushima finished third with 49.1.

Tsogbadrah came to the final ranked third with 582 points from the preliminary round while Otryad and Fukushima were only at seventh and eighth with 580 points.

Serbia and Montenegro's Jasna Saekaric, who topped the preliminary with 583 along with Indian Sushma Singh, took the fourth place with 783 points. Singh dropped to sixth with a disappointing 780.4.

After five days, hosts Thailand have failed to land any medal in the meet.Thailand have their last chance in the men's 50m rifle prone and 50m pistol where Tavarit Majchacheep and Jakkkrit Panichpatikum will be in action before the curtain comes down on the meet today.
