German shooter Tino Mohaupt repeated his World Cup success in the Universiade in the men's 10m air rifle event on Sunday.

Mohaupt led the qualification round with 598 points, which would easily secure him a top three position in the International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup series and kept on the first place after the 10-shot final round with a total of 700.1 points.

"I think I am very lucky today with 10.0s," said Mohaupt, who majored in sports management in the University of Cooperate Identity in Stuttgart, south of Germany. "But I was angry about the last two series of 99, because I was very strong at this time and wished a 600, so I was shaking during the last series."

Sergey Kruglov of Russia, the runner-up of the European Championships in 2006, did the best in the final with a score of 104.1 points took the silver medal with a total of 699.1 points, with Nicolo Campriani of Italy on the third with 695.0 points.

The 23-year-old Mohaupt won his first international title on his home soil at the World Cup in Munich in June and a quota place for the Beijing Olympics next year at the same time.

Mohaupt, who had a part-time job for a sports company, expressed his hope to be "nominated" for the German squad to the World University Shooting Championships in October in Beijing next year, but wished to be in the Capital of China before that for the Olympic Games.

"I am looking forward to the Olympics, but there will be many qualifications and I still have a long way to go," said Mohaupt. " Now it seems a very good chance for me, and I think I am close."
