Journalist notes[edit]

Finals[edit]

Athletes have 8 minutes to warm up and practice during the finals. These competitors can hold the rile themselves. While event is called standing, everyone either sites on a stool or in a wheelchair in this particular one. --LauraHale (talk) 10:46, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

After warm up, they had to unload. The range was declared safe and the finalists were introduced in ascending order of qualifying scores with Kosmala first (in lane 8) and Smith in lane 4. --LauraHale (talk)

Wolfghang Hess and Paul Young in charge of stuff for scoring and on the floor. --LauraHale (talk) 10:56, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Competitors had 2 and a half minutes to do a final check of their siting on their guns.

The gold medal would be the first awarded at the Games. No other sports had given out medals yet. --LauraHale (talk) 10:59, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

During that 2 and a half minutes, almost everyone had one or two red (7 or fewer points) ones except Zhang.

Start of sporting career She started competing in para-shooting in 1970. (paralympic.org.au, 27 Apr 2011)

Reason for taking up this sport "I started with archery and I really enjoyed that as archery and shooting in some ways are very similar. And then the person I used to shoot arrows with suggested I go along to a rifle range. He got invited there and I said `No, I don't want to be a rifle shooter'. And he said `Come along, don't be mean', so I went along and had a go and shot my first shot right through the middle of the target." (paralympic.org.au, 06 Sep 2008)

Ambitions To compete at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. (paralympic.org.au, 27 Apr 2011)

Hit submit at stadium and knoew I knew this but was unsure if statement was sourced. ----LauraHale (talk) 12:23, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Title[edit]

I'd work around Australia taking the bronze, of the first set of medals awarded. Title is currently a little 'odd' in that it appears a bronze has been awarded, with the silver/gold still being fought over. --Brian McNeil / talk 15:14, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

Tried to address this by adding "its". --Pi zero (talk) 16:37, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
