Hanoian keeps eye on the target to claim records
HAØNOÄI - Two additional tournament records we reset at the National Youth Shooting Championships in Haø Noäi yesterday, according to officials.
Nguyeãn Thò Hoan of the host team shot 366 points in the womens 10-metre running target individual event at the National Sports Training Centre yesterday. Her score smashed the old record of 350 points by military shooter Nguyeãn Thò Thuaän AÙnh in 2011.

With two finishers in the top three, Haø Noäi easily won the team event title, with a total score of 1,044, which is also a new record. The old record of 956 points had been set four years ago by residents from the capital.
The Ñaék Laék and Military squads placed second and third, respectively.
In the womens 50-metre rifle prone individual event, Vuõ Thò Haûi of Thanh Hoùa scored 582 points for the top position. Nguyeãn Thò Ngaân of Vónh Phuùc and Döông Thò Luyeán from Haø Noäi finished behind her.

Teammates Phan Thò Phöông Thuùy, Voõ Thò Ngoïc Dòu and Leâ Thò Nga shared the top three positions in the individual class. They then took the podium again for the team pool event.
