Sharpshooter Jin Jong-oh blazes his way forward

During the 2016 International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup at the Baku Olympic Shooting Range in Azerbaijan, Jin shot 178.8 in the 10-meter (32.8-foot) air pistol event on Saturday to earn bronze.

Having initially carded gold the previous day at 50-meter pistol event, Jin is now set to travel to Brazil with a bit of wind beneath his wings.
