Tying with China with identical 1,742 points, Thailand was deduced to the second place because of lower scores from the last serie of ten shots.

"We double-checked the targets of all three teams in the leading positions and found one of them previously counted a nine was actually a ten," said Tan Weichang, the classification jury. " And the piece of paper target had been checked through a meterage machine for the hole."

"The jury board didn''t know whose target it was, only to make sure that we made the correct counting," he added.

In previous competition, Janejira Srisongkram won the host country the first shooting gold by catching 100 birds out of 120 in the women''s double trap event.

The Chinese lived up to the fame in the women''s 25m pistol event by winning both the team and individual titles with international debutant Wang Jieyi on top of the individual ranking with a total of 785.7 points.

Japan stopped the gold-medal haul in the relay events of the United States by winning the women''s 4x100m medley relay in the swimming competition.

The U.S. team was on the way for the fifth relay gold medal after it wrapped up the victories of the four relay events in the past four days.
