From a press release:
Jamie Gray (Lebanon, Pa.) placed fifth and Sarah Scherer (Woburn, Mass.) finished seventh in women’s 10m air rifle competition to open the London 2012 Olympic Games at Royal Artillery Barracks.
The gold medal went to Yi Siling of China, who staged a comeback to win with a score of 502.9. Sylwia Bogacka of Poland took the silver with a 502.2, while Yu Dan of China won the bronze with a 501.5. Reigning Olympic champion Katie Emmons of the Czech Republic found herself in a hole, edging into the final by a mere 0.2 points, then rallied but fell short, finishing fourth with a 500.3. (Emmons is the wife of U.S. shooter and Olympic gold medalist Matt Emmons.)
Gray posted a score of 499.7, while Scherer had a 499.0. It marked only the second time the U.S. has advanced two shooters to the final in the event, the other coming in at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
