Baku, May 14, AZERTAC
Qatar already has a bronze medal, but had to wait until Sunday for its first gold as Aldana Saad Almubarak dominated a tightly-contested women's 25-metre pistol final at the Islamic Solidarity Games.
The 24-year old sharpshooter, who finished only fifth in the qualifications, was the most consistent, finishing with 28 points ahead of Iran's Haniyeh Rostamiyan on 23.
Three-times African champion Olfa Cherni of Tunisia stumbled in the final rounds, but still managed to hold on to the bronze medal.
Home shooter Irada Ashumova, who bagged a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, came up short of the podium.
