Korea’s Kim Kyeongae, 23, won today’s 25m Pistol Women event, at the ISSF Rifle & Pistol World Cup in Fort Benning, GA, USA.
The young shooter beat Zorana Arunovic of Serbia in the Gold medal match, by 7 points to 1, after passing through the semi-final with 14 hits. Bronze went to Serbia’s 1988 Olympic Bronze medallist Jasna Sekaric, who finished on the podium after beating the 2-time Olympci Champion Maria Grodzeva of Bulgaria in the Bronze medal match by 9 to 7 hits.
Today’s Gold medallist Kim had already won an ISSF World Cup medal, this year, while shooting on her home turf in Changwon, Korea, last April.
Once again, it was a young, up-and-coming shooter, to take advantage of the new ISSF final formats.
