Shooting: Moleman Wins Gold in Women’s 10m Air Pistol at Oceania Championships

Danielle Moleman won gold in the women’s 10m air pistol at the 2019 Oceania Shooting Championships. In terms of Olympic qualification, the highest ranked eligible athlete qualified to the games. In addition, all athletes whom qualify a quota for their nation must reach the Minimum Qualification Score (MQS) during the competition. The Oceania Shooting Championships is currently being held in Sydney, Australia from November 1st to November 9th 2019.

The qualification round was topped by Australia’s Dina Aspandiyarova whom finished with a score of 566. This was 13 more than New Zealand’s Lauren Mungo. The final saw Danielle Moleman of Australia take a large early lead and held on to it to win gold. However, since she did not obtain the MQS during the qualification round the Olympic quota was won by Aspandiyarova whom finished with the silver medal. By winning the quota, Australia is now eligible to compete in the mixed team 10m air pistol event. The bronze medal was won by Australia’s Kayla Aylward.

All selected athletes must achieve the MQS in an eligible event order to compete at the Olympics. The Oceania Shooting Championships continues Thursday with quotas being awarded in the men’s and women’s 50m rifle 3 positions.
