World champion shooter Yang Haoran of Hebei nailed his second gold medal at the 13th National Games here on Thursday with a stylish victory in the men's 50m rifle 3 positions.

Yang scored 460.4 points in the final, 0.4 points ahead of second-placed Hui Zicheng, who represents the PLA team. Sun Jian from Shanghai took the bronze with 449.2 points.

The 21-year-old Yang ranked first in the qualification round with a total score of 1,189 points, surpassing the world record by three points.

The current world record was set by Nazar Louginets of Russia on June 12, 2014 at ISSF World Cup Rifle & Pistol in Munich, Germany.

Yang won the gold medal in men's 10m air rifle at the world championships in Munich in 2014.

This victory came after Yang retained his National Games title in the men's 10m air rifle on Tuesday with the highest score of 248.9 points.

"I am glad to win my second gold, especially because I've never won the event before," said Yang.

"The finalists are familiar with each other. I am satisfied with my performance at these Games," he added.

Zhao Ruozhu from Shanxi took the gold in women's 10m air rifle with 250.9 points, while Wang Luyao from Zhejiang ranked second with 249.5 points. Gao Mingwei from Liaoning rounded out the podium with 227.6 points.
