Lin bested Lebanon’s Ray Bassil, Gold medallist at the first World Cup stage of the 2016 season in Nicosia (CYP). In the Bronze medal match, 3rd placed Germany’s Sonja Scheibl also collected her second consecutive medal.

It didn’t take too much for Chinese Taipei to experience the highest step of the podium at the ISSF World Cup stage in Rio de Janeiro (BRA), as Lin Yi Chun prevailed over Lebanon’s Ray Bassil in today's Trap Women Gold medal match, despite missing four of her first six medal match targets.


With Bassil nailing the perfect semifinal round with 15 target hits, Lin joined her only after going through a shoot-off with China’s Chen Fang, as they both concluded the semifinal with 12 hits. In the tie-breaker it took seven additional targets to award Lin with the spot in the Gold medal match.


There, after a cold start, Lin crushed eight of her last nine targets, finishing with a 10 hits to 9 final score and claiming the first World Cup Gold medal of her career.


After losing the shoot-off to enter the Gold medal match, China’s Chen also lost the Bronze one, where Germany’s Sonja Scheibl qualified with 11 semifinal targets. The German shooter, Silver medallist at this year’s World Cup stage in Nicosia, prevailed over Chen with the final score of 11 hits to 9, stepping on the 3rd step to podium and earning her second consecutive ISSF World Cup medal.


Eliminated after the semifinal round, two Australian shooters placed in 5th and 6th position: Catherine Skinner with 9 target hits and her teammate Laetisha Scanlan with 8.


The ISSF World Cup stage in Rio de Janeiro will continue today with the 10m Air Pistol Men final, scheduled at 4:15 PM (UTC-3).
