Great Britain’s Peter Wilson won gold in the men’s double trap shooting event by two shots over Sweden’s Hakan Dahlby. After Britain’s poor shooting performance in 2008, UK Sport cut all of Wilson’s funding, but his parents funded his training until he could raise enough money through fundraising events. Russia’s Vasily Mosin took the bronze after beating Kuwait’s Fehaid Aldeehani in a shoot off.
Russia may have only taken bronze in shooting, but with Vladimir Putin looking on, Russian Tagir Khaibulaev took home the gold medal in men’s half-heavyweight (100 kg) judo after defeating Mongolia’s Tuvshinbayar Naidan by ippon. Germany’s Dimitri Peters claimed one bronze medal and Henk Grol of the Netherlands won the other bronze medal match.
Meanwhile, on the whitewater, France’s Emilie Fer won gold in the women’s kayak singles slalom with a time of 105.9 seconds. Australia’s Jessica Fox took silver and Spain’s Maialen Chourraut bronze; both women finished within one second of Fer’s winning time.
