As has been the case all week so far, hosts South Korea proved the sharpest shooters at the Ongnyeon International Shooting Range picking up another three gold medals.

There was further home success for Ju-Hee Lee in the P3 mixed 25m pistol SH1 after he finished ahead of China's Hedong Ni and compatriot Sea-Kyun Park.

Jin-Ho Park rounded off a clean-sweep for South Korea after shooting his way to gold in the R6 mixed 50m rifle prone SH1.

Silver and bronze went to the United Arab Emirates' Paralympic champion Abdulla Sultan Alayrani and Abdulla Saif Alaryani respectively.

Iran's World Championship silver medallist Seyedhamed Solhipouravanji went one better in Incheon today by claiming gold and a world record in the men's under 88kg powerlifting competition.

Solhipouravanji produced a second round lift of 226kg to beat Jordan's world champion Mutaz Zakaria Daoud Aljuneidi, who had to settle for silver.

Buoyed on by his success, 24-year-old Solhipouravanji then lifted 229.5kg in the fourth round to add 0.5kg to Aljuneidi's world record set in April.

Mongolia's Sodnompiljee Enkhbayar  completed the podium with bronze.
