SINGAPORE ó Shooter Teo Shun Xie clinched Singaporeís first medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow yesterday ó a gold in the womenís 10m air pistol.

Ms Teo, a 25-year-old research officer, came tops in the elimination-style final shootout involving eight shooters.

Ms Heena Sidhu, Indiaís world No 4 and 2013 ISSF World Cup final winner, topped the qualifying, but was the second to be eliminated.

With Indiaís Malaika Goel left to beat as the field was whittled down to the final two, Ms Teo held her nerve to score 19.9 with her final two shots against Ms Goelís 19.2, clinching gold with a total score of 198.6.

Ms Goel settled for silver with a total of 197.1, while Canadaís Dorothy Ludwig claimed the bronze in 177.2.

ďIím really happy that I managed to win this, and especially with this new final format (for shooting),Ē said Ms Teo in an interview after the medal ceremony yesterday at the Barry Buddon Shooting Centre in Dundee.

ďI didnít know that Sidhu was the World Cup winner. I just kept my focus on my shots till the last shot and couldnít really react to winning until I laid down my pistol.Ē

Added Ms Teo: ďI didnít really do well in qualification, but with this new format, it allowed me to catch up. I had a few bad shots in the beginning of the final but I kept reminding myself that the target is the same one Iíve been training with here for the past week.

ďI hope to get into the finals of the 25m pistol and fight my way to another medal again. I also hope my medal will encourage my team-mates to keep their faith in themselves and achieve good results.Ē

A silver medallist in this event at the South-east Asian Games last December in Myanmar, Ms Teo entered the final as the fifth-highest qualifier with 377 points. She hardly had time to celebrate her gold medal victory yesterday, as she was first ushered to doping control before taking a phone call from Singapore President Tony Tan.

Ms Teo will be competing in the womenís 25m pistol qualification round at 4pm today.

At the last Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, shooting delivered five of the 11 gold medals that Singapore won, with table-tennis responsible for the rest. The 11-strong shooting contingent will be looking to Ms Teo to inspire them to more success.

Commonwealth Games involves nations previously or currently under British rule.

For countries which still recognize Queen Elizabeth as their Monach, this seems logical but why should ex-colonies like Singapore still participate? But nevertheless, congrats to Ms Teo! Im glad that sg athletics are able to have a bigger international platform then ASEAN's SEA Games to compete and win medals
