Dikec adds another gold for Turkey

Baku, May 15, AZERTAC

Yusuf Dikec claimed Turkey's 21st gold medal of the Islamic Solidarity Games when he dominated the men's 50-meter pistol shooting final in Baku on Monday.

The 44-year-old retired police officer fought off Oman's Ismail Al Abri, who finished strong to trouble the eventual winner.

Mohammad Ahmadi moved into third place after six rounds and he managed to hold onto his standing to take the bronze medal.

Azerbaijan's Rasul Mammadov had a difficult start to the final, trailing the leader by 17 points and he eventually had to settle for eighth place.
