Lee Jang-ho of South Korea had a day to remember at the World Shooting Para Sport Championships in Abu Dhabi as he won his first two gold medals and helped set a world record.

Another outstanding performance came from Poland’s Emilia Babska, who defeated a field of Paralympic stars to earn her first world title in the R8 women's 50 metres rifle three positions SH1 category.

Lee had an equally strong field to contend with in his individual event at the Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting and Golf Club in Abu Dhabi.

But despite poor health conditions he also came through for his first individual world gold in the R1 men's 10m air rifle standing SH1 final before playing his part in a team win in a world-record score.

Lee and France's Didier Richard took turns in the lead throughout the individual competition, with Lee confirming gold with two final shots of 10.5 to finish on 246.7 points.

Richard took silver on 244.1, having secured at least that spot ahead of Tokyo 2020 Paralympic bronze medallist Park Jin-ho with four shots remaining.

Ukraine's Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Andrii Doroshenko finished fourth, while Park is also South Korea.

Both Lee and Richard secured the Paris 2024 quotas in the event.

"This is my first World Championships title so; it's a special one," Lee told the International Paralympic Committee website.

"I hope to continue this form to the next year and win medals for Korea, and eventually produce a medal winning show in Paris 2024.

"Last few months wasn’t great for me, so I have put a lot of work in my training for the Worlds.

"I was just focused on my shooting process and believed in myself that worked for me today."

In the team event, South Korea clinched the gold thanks to Lee’s, Park’s and Shim Young-jip’s qualification scores that produced a world record of 1,877.6 points.

Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates took respective silver and bronze.

South Korea now sit on the top of the medal standings with five gold medals - three individual and two team - followed by Italy and France with three gold medals each.

Babska, who is participating in her second World Championships, defeated opponents including Slovakian legend Veronika Vadovicova and Tokyo 2020 medallists Avani Lekhara from India and Natascha Hiltrop of Germany to earn gold.

The 22-year-old from Warsaw narrowly led the field in all the three positions - kneeling, prone and standing - to finish on 455.9 points.

Ukrainian Iryna Shchetnik, on 452.8 and Vadovicova on 441.8, took second and third places, respectively.

South Korea's Lee Yoo-jeong and Thailand's Wannipa Leungvilai secured the two Paris 2024 quotas in the event in fourth and sixth places.

"This is my second World Championships and my first Worlds title here," said Babska.

“I am very happy and excited.”

It is not the first time she has defeated a strong field to win the gold medal.

At the Munich 2022 World Cup the Polish shooter took the gold medal, defeating winner of Tokyo 2020 Games.

"I have been practising yoga for the last four years and it helps me in concentrating on the game," she added.

Shchetnik said that it was a difficult final with scores going high.

"I am happy to have managed another medal here," she said.

"Considering the situation where we didn’t have much training, I am satisfied with the silver.

"Now my focus is only on the Paris 2024 gold medal," said the Ukrainian shooter who is competing in R2, R3, R8 and R10 mixed team event.
