The teenager overcame a wobbly start in the 24-shot final, displaying nerves of steel to climb steadily up the leaderboard and eventually end with 217.6, bowing out after the 22nd shot. Armenia's Elmira Karapetyan won gold, while Thai teenager Kamonlak Saencha won silver and the second available quota place.
