Hosts South Korea produced another solid display at the International Military Sports Council (CISM) World Games in Mungyeong as they claimed seven golds to secure fourth place on the overall medal table.

Song Jong-ho clinched the men’s 25 metres rapid fire pistol title before the home nation bagged a treble of boxing golds thanks to light flyweight Park Jeong-ung, bantamweight Kim Ju-seong and Yang Hee-geun, who took the light heavyweight crown.

The success continued for South Korea as Kim Ji-hun secured the men's Greco-Roman 66 kilograms gold while Kim Jin-hyeok reigned supreme in the 75kg Greco-Roman division.

Kim Ji-hwan, Lee Ji-hong and Kim Ju-seok rounded off another fruitful day for the hosts by securing the men’s elite team triathlon title.

Elsewhere on the penultimate day of action, Zhang Yuhan of China broke her third record of the Games as she won the women’s 400 metres freestyle swimming event in 4min 06.70sec, ahead of Italian Martina de Memme and Brazil’s Manuella Lyrio.

Brazil’s Joao Gomes Jr, who served a six-month doping ban from December 2014 to June this year, was also in great form as he took gold in the men’s 50m breastroke in 27.14sec, moving him into seventh place in the International Swimming Federation world rankings for the race.

Mariia Liver of the Ukraine broke the Games record for the women’s 50m breastroke as she clocked 31.06, beating Suo Ran of China and Russia’s Vera Kalashnikova.

Brazil maintained their excellent performance in the pool as Henrique Martins topped the podium in the men’s 100m butterfly in 52.71, which saw him finish ahead of Italian Piero Codia and Ukraine’s Oleksii Ivanov.

Martins then teamed up with Nicolas Oliveira, Nicholas dos Santos and Joao Lucca to secure 4x100m freestyle relay gold in 3:18.56, with the Chinese quartet of Yingying, Suo Ran, Zhang Yuhan and Liu Yiru proving too strong in the women’s race in 3:43.25.

Qiao Zhongyi bagged another gold for China as he led home a one-two for his nation in the men’s 400m freestyle in 3:52.65, with compatriot Zu Lijun sealing silver and Poland’s Kacper Klich earned bronze.

Germany picked up a swimming title thanks to Christian Diener’s victory in the men’s 200m backstroke by clocking 2:00.34, ousting Russian Nikita Babchenko and Leandro Gomes of Brazil.

Svetlana Chimrova’s time of 58.67 was enough to win the women’s 100m butterfly as she touched the wall in front of Poland’s Anna Dowgiert and Gong Jie of China, while teammate Alexandra Papusha ensured her country finished with a flurry of golds as she took the women’s 200m backstroke honours in 2:15.91.

Brazil’s Natalia de Luccas was second and Vietnam’s Vien Nguyen came home to clinch third.
