(Update) Shooter Emmons Wins Silver
Matt Emmons won the silver medal in the men's 50m prone rifle competition at the Beijing Shooting Range Hall Friday morning.
Entering the 10-shot final round trailing Artur Ayvazian of the Ukraine by two points, Emmons was able to cut the gap in half, but Ayvazian consistently scored between 10.0 and 10.8 to hold off the American's challenge. Ayvazian scored a 702.7 to Emmons' 701.7. The bronze medal was won by Warren Potent of Australia, whose 105.5 was the high score of the final round, giving him a 700.5 that vaulted him over Norway's Vebjoern Berg and onto the medal podium.
