China’s Yang Qian has won gold in the women's 10m air rifle, the first medal event of the 2020 Olympic Games. 

Yang’s 251.8 points is a final Olympic record.

Russian Anastasiia Galashina clinched the silver medal. Russian athletes aren’t competing under their national name at the Olympics due to continuing sanctions over doping. 

They are officially recognized as members of ROC, an abbreviation of the Russian Olympic Committee.

Switzerland’s Nina Christen earned bronze.
