(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.
