China's Dong Chao has added another gold to his nation's medal tally after clinching the Paralympic top honour in the men's R1-10m air rifle standing SH1 final.

Dong racked up an overall score of 596, which easily snatched him the gold medal after his closest rival Jonas Jakobsson for Sweden could muster 593 to claim silver.

The bronze medal was decided by a shoot-off between Germany's Josef Neumaier and South Korea's Lee Seungchul. Neumaier edged it with a score of 594.

Dong's win takes China's gold medal tally up to seven, which bumps their overall total to 19 at the top of the table.
