2013 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup in Changwon, Korea.

2008 Olympic Bronze medalist Christian Reitz of Germany won the 25m Rapid Fire Pistol Men event on  April 9th, at the 2013 ISSF Rifle and Pistol World Cup in Changwon, Korea.

Reitz outdid China’s Li Yuehong, outscoring his opponent 5 to 3 hits at the last series. The 25-year old German champion won the match with an overall score of 30 points, coming back atop of an ISSF World Cup podium after missing since his victory at the 2011 ISSF World Cup Final in Wroclaw. 

23-yearold Li Yuehong secured the Silver medal with a total score of 29 points. He had won his last ISSF medal back in 2010, when he finished first at the ISSF World Cups in Beijing and Sydney, and then pocketed the Bronze at the 2010 ISSF World Championship in Munich. Two Russia shooters, Leonid Ekimov (25) and Alexander Alifirenko (21) dueled for the Bronze. The two teammates finished tied after the sixth series, and they had to shoot-off to stay into the final.

It was the 2008 Olympic finalist Ekimov who won the sudden-death tie breaker, finishing then in third place with a total score of 19 hits, while Alifirenko closed in fourth with 18 hits. Two Chinese shooters took the fifth and sixth place, Zhang Jian with 16 hits and Ding Feng, with 11 hits.
