Veronika Vadovicova smashed a qualification world record on the opening day of competition at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Shooting World Cup in Bangkok today.

The Slovakian, competing in the R3 mixed 10 metre air rifle prone SH1, registered 639.7 points to break the mark set by South Korea's Jae Yong Sim in 2013.

Vadovicova, the 33-year-old world and European champion and Paralympic bronze medallists, then went on to claim gold in the final with a score of 209.8 to seal a second World Cup success this year.

Abdullah Sultan Alaryani of the United Arab Emirates managed to draw level with the Slovakian at one stage but could not maintain that form and had to settle for the silver medal on 209.4 points.

The bronze medal went to Norway's Paul Aksel Johansen who shot his way to 188.2.

In the team event, Alaryani found redemption as he took gold alongside Abdullah Saif Alaryani and Obaid Aldahmani with a combined total of 1896.4 points.

Hosts Thailand took home the silver medal with Chutima Saenlar, Atidet Intanon and Suthat Rodtapao scoring 1894.8 with France's trio of Cedric Fevre, Christophe Tanche and Didier Richard tallying 1892.1 for bronze.

Elsewhere, Ukraine's Oleksii Denysiuk won gold in the P3 mixed 25m pistol SH1 event.

The Rio 2016 Paralympics favourite made his international debut just under a year ago but has now won three competitions, this time edging Turkey's European champion Korham Yamac into second place.

South Africa’s Von Zeuner Kohne, on the road to his first Paralympic Games, claimed the bronze medal,.

Team honours went to South Korea.

Their trio of Juhee Lee, Youngkyun Seo and Aeekyoung Moon scored 1612 to beat Thailand’s Sommai Atsa, Ittipat Maneejak and Niwat Khruekkruenchit who managed 1578 points to secure another silver for the home team.

Slovenia's Gorazd Francek Tirsek, second at London 2012, was the gold medallist in the R4 mixed 10m rifle standing SH2.

His 211.7 points saw him beat Ukraine's European champion Vasyl Kovalchuk who finished up on 210.2, while Kuwait's Atef Aldousari did enough for bronze with 187.6.

Action in Bangkok is due to continue tomorrow.
