HÀ NỘI — Marksman Hoàng Xuân Vinh was ranked second in the world in February in the men’s 10m air pistol category.
After his success in winning an Olympic gold medal in 2016, Vinh retained the top place for more than one year, but failed in recent international tournaments and has fallen one place.
Japanese Matsuda Tomoyuki has risen to the No 1 seat. He was voted best shooter in 2017, according to the International Shooting Sport Federation.
Vinh’s teammate Trần Quốc Cường is at No 13.
In the men’s 25m rapid pistol, there is no change for Vietnamese athletes. Hà Minh Thành remains at No 37, Phan Xuân Chuyên is No 47, and Phan Công Minh No 56. — VNS
