Iran could win gold medal at the 10m air rifle mixed team event, followed by Republic of Korea with silver, and Russia with bronze at the 30th Summer Universiade.

According to an ISCA report, Najmeh Khedmati and her teammate Mahyar Sedaghat won the close shoot-off against their Korean rivals, Jiwoo Seo and Taeyun Nam, 16-14.

The rule of the final rounds is for the two teams to compare their score after each shot. The team with the higher score wins two points, and it is one point each if it is a draw. The team that gets to 16 points first wins the game.

“This match was between two of the best teams, so of course we were nervous,” Sedaghat said later, the official website reports, “But I think it is very important to control yourself, to compete with yourself, and to stay focused during the competition.”
