Result: Jin wins 50m pistol gold

South Korea's Jin Jongoh wins his second gold of the Games in the men's 50m pistol final.

South Korea's Jin Jongoh won his second gold of this summer's Games with success in the men's 50m pistol final this afternoon.

Jin's compatriot Choi Young Rae led most of the way, and had a substantial lead with just four shots remaining, but Jin whittled down the gap before finally taking gold with the last shot, adding to his gold in the 10m pistol event.

Vietnam's Xuan Vinh Hoang shot a poor 7.3 on his penultimate shot to allow Andrija Zlatic of Serbia to draw level in third place, but ultimately it was China's Wang Zhiwei who overtook both on the final shot to claim a dramatic bronze.

Jin amassed a score of exactly 100 in the final itself, three more than the next highest scorer.
