Ready, aim... and it's gold for Jasmine Ser
SINGAPORE clinched its fourth gold medal at the Commonwealth Games early yesterday, with shooter Jasmine Ser winning the women's 50m rifle three positions final.
She beat Scotland's Jen McIntosh with a score of 449.1 points to 446.6. India's Lajja Gauswami took the bronze with 436.1 points.
It was a close fight between Ser and home favourite McIntosh. Going into the final shot, Ser led 439.3 points against McIntosh's 438.7 points. But McIntosh shot a dismal 7.9 points, and a confident Ser hit 9.8 points to take the top spot.
The Republic's other gold-medal victories were in men's and women's team table tennis, and the women's 10m air pistol event.
