South Korea’s Jin Jong-oh shot his way back from the brink of elimination to win his third consecutive gold in the men’s 50 Metre pistol event in rio 2016. With a steadier hand in the final rounds, jin prevailed over vietnam’s xuan vinh hoang, who made history on saturday (august 6) by winning his country’s first gold medal. Having qualified in first position out of eight, jin got off to a wobbly start. A third of the way through the competition, he was nearly five points behind the leader hoang, and at risk of being cut. Kim song guk of north korea won the bronze in his first ever international final.
