(LEAD) (Asiad) China takes three shooting golds as S. Korea stumbles
(ATTN: ADDS comments in paras 14-15)
By Yoo Jee-ho and Oh Seok-min
INCHEON, Sept. 20 (Yonhap) -- China dominated the shooting range on the first day of the Incheon Asian Games on Saturday, sweeping up three of the four gold medals up for grabs in pistol events while host South Korea struggled to keep up.
The Chinese female pistol shooters captured the first gold medal of the 2014 Asiad. The trio of Guo Wenjun, Zhang Mengyuan and Zhou Qingyuan combined for 1,146 points to win the women's 10m air pistol team event at Ongnyeon International Shooting Range in Incheon.
The total scores of three shooters for each country in the individual qualification round determined the medal winners in the team component.


Chinese Taipei got the silver with 1,141 points. Mongolia and South Korea were tied at 1,140 points but the Mongolians shot more inner 10s than the South Koreans, 35-29, to take the bronze.
Zhang later captured her second gold medal in the individual event. She shot 202.2 points to beat Jung Jee-hae of South Korea by 0.9 point, becoming the first double gold medalist of this year's Asiad.
South Korea had won both the team and the individual gold in the women's 10m air pistol at the last Asiad in Guangzhou, China.
China earned another team gold, this time in the men's 50m pistol. The team of Pang Wei, Pu Qifeng and Wang Zhiwei together shot 1,692 points, 22 points better than the silver medalist, South Korea.
Only Jitu Rai's gold medal for India in the individual event later Saturday prevented a complete Chinese sweep of pistol shooting medals on Saturday.
All three Chinese shooters qualified for the final and Wang took the bronze.
In contrast to their rivals' dominance, the South Koreans were off target on Saturday and walked away with just two silver medals.
Jung Jee-hae grabbed silver in the women's 10m air pistol event, after she and her two teammates came in fourth in the team competition.
The men's 50m pistol trio of Jin Jong-oh, Lee Dae-myung and Choi Young-rae also got the team silver medal. Jin, the only one of the three to qualify for the individual final, finished a disappointing seventh.
Jin, a three-time Olympic champ who also grabbed two world titles earlier this month, is still seeking his first individual Asiad gold. He will get his next crack in 10m air pistol on Sunday.
"I know you all had your expectations, and I expected more out of myself," Jin told reporters afterward. "I still have an event tomorrow and will do my best."
At 34, Jin may be getting close to reaching a crossroads in his illustrious career. He said he isn't ready to leave, saying his mediocre showing Saturday "may just be a sign from above that I shouldn't retire just yet."
On the women's side, Kim Jang-mi was also a disappointment. The 2012 Olympic champ in the 25m pistol was the top qualifier among the eight finalists, but she could only manage seventh place in the final.
Kim's main event, the 25m pistol, will take place Monday.
