Zublasing Places 12th in Air Rifle at 2012 London Summer Olympics

Posted:

Rising West Virginia University senior Petra Zublasing placed 12th in the women's 10m air rifle, today, inside the Royal Artillery Barracks, at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

        The Appiano, Italy, native, and the 2012 NCAA air rifle
champion, just missed qualifying for the event final, shooting 396
(99-100-99-98). Five shooters shot 397 and competed in a shoot-off for
the final's last four spots.

        Shooting in her first Olympic Games, Zublasing, ranked No. 32 in
the world in the event, improved upon her last three international
scores, as she shot 393 at the 2012 London, Milan and Munich
International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cups.

        China's Yi Siling won the event's Gold medal with a final
total of 502.9. Yi shot 399 in the qualification round and 103.9 in the
final. Poland's Sylwia Bogacka won Silver with a total of 502.2 (399,
103.2), while Yi's teammate, Yu Dan, shot 501.5 (398, 103.5) and won
Bronze.

        Yi, the reigning air rifle world champion, was the first athlete
of the Games to earn a medal.

        No. 1-ranked Nicco Campriani looks to follow-up his 2010 air
rifle world championship with an Olympic Gold medal this Monday, July
30, in the men's 10m air rifle. The qualification round is set to
begin at 9 a.m. London GMT, with the final scheduled for 12:15 p.m. A
