(BEIJING, August 15) -- Ukraine's Artur Ayvazian won the gold medal in the Men's 50m Rifle Prone in Beijing on August 15, scoring a total of 702.7 points.
The United States' Matthew Emmons won the silver medal with a total of 701.7 and Australia's Warren Potent won the bronze medal with a total of 700.5.
Ayvazian was the highest-scoring shooter in the qualification round with a total of 599, one point shy of a perfect score. Emmons finished the qualification round in second place with a total of 597.
Norway's Vebjoern Berg finished the qualification round in third place with a total of 596. Four shooters were tied on 595, including Potent.
Ayvazian's performance in the final was solid, which was enough for him to hold onto the lead and win the gold medal. Emmons scored only 9.8 on his fourth shot, but he scored 10.8 on both his fifth and sixth shots, which helped him gain a lead over the rest of the field.
Potent was the best-performed shooter in the final, shooting a total of 105.5. His strong performance helped him overtake Russia's Konstantin Prikhodtchenko in third place.
After a perfect 10.9 on his third shot, Prikhodtchenko appeared capable of threatening Emmons for the silver medal. However, his game fell away after hitting 10.9 and he finished fifth, a tenth of a point behind Berg in fourth place.
Ayvazian, 35, finished ninth in the event at Athens 2004. By winning the gold medal today, he defeated the Athens 2004 gold medalist in the event, the 27-year-old Emmons.
TsarSamuil: Medicines aren't allowed to be sold on the market without a 15 year trial period, to determine short n long term effects. Sputnik just turned 1 year, others not even that, just months, how can we determine long term effects without the data from long term

TsarSamuil: exposure? Does anyone have a time machine to go 14 years or so into the future n come back n say whether we have good vaccines? Fear makes world abandon its own standards..Besides, vaccines for other illnesses that have been developed for YEARS actually
Aug 24, 2021 11:23:40 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: help. These covid vaccines are literally SHIT, why else do they demand you take 1, 2 n now 3 shots? The problem is also a disease becomes resilient if u administer a weak vaccine that doesn't do the job proper. Allow illness to survive just makes it strong
Aug 24, 2021 11:25:04 GMT -5
TsarSamuil: instead if we go by the book, we should all wait for a really good vaccine to take out the illness for good. Now...we may never get rid of it..but understandably the world economy has a hard time dealing with lock downs, but that is just needless panic

TsarSamuil: why Swe had fared well with country not being locked down? Because they are cold people, keeping distance was the thing before covid-19 was ever heard of, I hope world doesn't become like that, but some could use a little common sense n change in behavior.

TsarSamuil: It's no wonder covid hits so many Arabs in the country, stupid bastards..

TsarSamuil: If I go to H&M a new shirt, if an Arab wants to buy a pair of pants, not only is his whole family along, his friends, even his freaking grandmother is along n all chattering along in a big dumb group of ignorance..

Boro: Thx for the response. I'm not sure... It seems the vaccines work, at least people aren't dying of Covid. Those who get ill have a problem, it's not "just a flu". Maybe it's from a chinese laboratory, who knows...

Boro: I agree regarding Arabs..

Boro: Be glad, Sweden isn't overpopulated.

TsarSamuil: true, vaccines do help somewhat, maybe better than nothing..I hope in 2022 we can come out of this nightmare..

Boro: Horrible times, indeed.
