India, Sunday, October 10, 2010 — Jasmine Ser won a gold to add to the bulging medal haul of Singapore in the 10m Air Rifle singles event. Jasmine now has two gold and two silver medals from the games.
Jasmine set a new Games record with a 501.7 total, ahead of nearest challenger Nur Ayuni Halim of Malaysia who had 497.5. Nur Sayani Mohamed Taibi, also of Malaysia, finished third with 496.9.
“Even though I was up by two points or so coming into the final, I knew I had to continue shooting my best. I changed my lenses today and my eyes were not giving me any problems. This is possibly the best score I have achieved in an overseas event in the 10m Air Rifle,” said Jasmine.
“It has been a fantastic outing for me at the Commonwealth Games. This is also my best ever achievement at a multi-sport event in my sporting career so far. I am now looking forward to the Asian Games and will be training very hard for it,” added Jasmine.
“It has been a fantastic performance by the shooting team so far,” said Minister Vivian Balakrishnan who was on hand to witness Jasmine’s efforts in Delhi.
