Ukraine’s Oleksii Denysiuk won a second consecutive International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Shooting World Cup gold in Bangkok.
After victory in the P3 mixed 25m pistol SH1 event yesterday, he executed a fine comeback to triumph again today in the P1 men's 10m air pistol SH1.
Despite beginning strongly in the elimination round he then slipped to third place, leaving Turkey's Korhan Yamac as the front runner.
However, Denysiuk moved above South Korean Juhee Lee and into second by the fifth round and rose above Yamac with his final shots as the Turkish shooter twice dropped below 10.0.
Denysiuk’s final total was 196.0 with Yamac, an Athens 2004 Paralympic champion, and Lee having to settle for the minor medals on 194.6 and 173.7 respectively.
In the team event, Lee, Youngkyun Seo and Heejung Lee combined to score 1678 for gold, with Poland's trio Szymon Sowinski, Slawomir Okoniewski and Filip Rodzik registering 1648 for silver.
Thailand claimed bronze on their home range thanks to Pawaris Suksa-Ard, Sommai Atsa and Watchara Ingsanthia who shot their way to 1608.
More success for Ukraine arrived when Andrii Doroshenko took gold in the men's R1 10m air rifle standing SH1.
He scored 203.9 to beat the United Arab Emirates' Abdullah Sultan Alaryani, who managed 203.0 as his closest challenger.
The UAE also took bronze thanks to Obaid Aldahmani's 181.3.
In the women's R8 50m rifle three positions SH1, a shoot-off was required to decide gold.
Slovakia’s European champion Veronika Vadovicova was defeated by Germany’s Elke Seeliger, despite Vadovicova coming from behind in the standing round.
Both women finished with 437.6, but it was Seeliger who held her nerve, scoring a 9.5 compared to the Slovakian’s 8.9 in the shoot-off.
Germany’s Natascha Hiltrop took bronze with 424.7.
In the P5 mixed 10m air pistol standard SH1, Brazil’s Geraldo Rosenthal took gold with 349.
American Michael Tagliepietra was only just pipped after managing 348, with Hungary’s Gyula Gurisatti third on 345.
Competition continues in the Thai capital tomorrow.
