Spain wins mixed trap shooting at Tokyo Olympics; U.S. gets bronze

Spain's Alberto Fernandez and Fatima Galvez have won gold in mixed team trap shooting at the Tokyo Olympics.

They defeated San Marino's Gian Marco Berti and Alessandra Perilli 41-40 in the gold-medal match.

San Marino went into its final two shots with a chance to tie and send the match to a shoot-off, but Berti missed his to give the gold to the Spaniards.

The medal is San Marino's highest in the Olympics and just its second in 61 years of competition after Perilli won bronze in women's individual trap.

"I'm extremely happy that I've won this medal," Perilli said. "Our country is very small and for a small country, it's incredible to be here."

The gold was the first Olympic medal for Fernandez, a three-time world champion who's been one of the world's most decorated shooters.

Brian Burrows and Madelynn Ann Bernau of the United States won the bronze-medal match in a shoot-off 3-2 after tying Slovakia's Erik Varga and Zuzana Rehak Stefecekova with 42 targets each.

In other shooting events, Nina Christen of Switzerland won the women's 50-meter three-position rifle for her second medal of the Tokyo Olympics.

Christen pumped her fist after a 10.2 on her final shot and had an Olympic-record 463.9 points to beat Russian Yulia Zykova by 2.0.

The 27-year-old member of the Swiss armed forces also took bronze in 10-meter air rifle in her second Olympics.

Russian Yulia Karimova earned bronze for her second medal in Tokyo. She also took bronze with Sergey Kamenskiy in the 10-meter air rifle mixed team event.
