Russian marksman Leonid Ekimov clinched the second individual title at the Universiade in the men 's 10m air pistol event on Monday.

Ekimov led the qualification round with 585 points, four points ahead, and held on to win with a total of 686.5 points after grabbing the gold medal in the 50m pistol event last Friday.

Ha Gil Yong and Lee Dae Myung, both from South Korea finished second and third with 680.1 points and 679.9 points respectively.

The 19-year-old Russian pistol shooter, competing in all four men's pistol events, odd in international meets, took a silver in the 25m rapid fire pistol and a bronze in the 25m standard pistol.

Together with three golds and one silver from the team, Ekimov became the biggest winner at the Universiade shooting range with five golds, two silvers and one bronze.

However, it was not the bunch of medals that made him shining.

The sports-majored student from Pomorskiy State University of Russia shot 571 points in the qualification round of the 50m pistol event, which would easily secure him a top three spot or even higher in the World Cup series and making him a hot medal contender at the Beijing Olympics.
