Wang Qinqin from China won her first international title in the women's 50m rifle three positions on Sunday at the 24th Universiade.

Wang, 21, entered the ten-shot final round of standing position with 583 points, one point ahead of Slovakia's Naniela Peskova and held on to take the gold medal with a total of 681.7 points.

"I felt much relaxed today and thus performed well," said Wang, missing the chance of a gold medal on Friday by a pale final round. "I was too nervous yesterday, which cost me a gold or a silver."

Peskova finished second with a total of 679.2 points followed by Agnieszka Staron from Poland on 673.7 points.

Wang, a sophomore from the Sports Institute of Shandong Province, joined the Chinese national team last year, which was a big boost for herself.

"Training in the national team with Olympic and world champions helped me a lot," said Wang, who competed in the World Cups in Munich and Milan in 2006. "The scores in Munich were extremely high, including the current world record of 594 points."

Winning the title here was a compensate for her as she had no chance to make the Chinese Olympic squad.

"It was a pity that I could not compete in the domestic qualifications for the Olympics held at the same time in Beijing, but a gold medal here made me happy," she added.
