Abdulla Sultan Alaryani of the United Arab Emirates provided a fitting finale to the Al Ain 2022 World Shooting Para Sport Championships as he earned his second title on home soil in the R6 - mixed 50-metre rifle prone SH1 final.

In the medal standings, South Korea finished top with six gold from 20 medals, followed by Ukraine with 13 medals including three golds; and Poland with six medals, of which three were gold.

Hosts UAE ended in eighth place with two gold from their four medals.

Some of the top shooters also booked quota places for their respective nations at the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

Alaryani, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic gold medallist in R7, was a class apart as he led throughout in a thrilling final, overcoming strong challenges from eventual silver and bronze medallists Kasper Hjorth Lousdal of Denmark and Germany's Tokyo 2020 champion in R3, Natascha Hiltrop.

The home shooter earned himself and his country a second gold in the Championships with a score of 250.5 at the end of a dramatic final where Hiltrop went into the lead before a score of nine jolted her progress.

She eventually took bronze with 226.9, and Hjorth Lousdal's score of 247.9 earned him silver, his first medal at a World Championships and a quota place for Denmark.

The other quota place was earned by Great Britain's Matt Skelhon, who finished fifth on 185.9.

In the team competition, Hiltrop along with Cliff Unker and Bernhard Fendt took the gold medal for Germany with a total score of 1844.2 points, ahead of Ukraine and South Korea.

Later, Turkey claimed gold and silver in a gripping P6 mixed 10m air pistol standing mixed team SH1 final.

"We are very happy to win the gold medal," said Pehlivanlar.

"This is a great moment for our team Turkey."

The bronze medal was claimed by South Korea's Park Sea-kyun and Moon Aee-kyung  by defeating India's Manish Narwal and Rubina Francis, who staged a comeback but ultimately lost 16-12 in the play-off.
