Rio 2016 just like London 2012, Campriani repeats gold in the 50m rifle 3 positions men
Rio 2016 just like London 2012, as long as there is Niccolò Campriani in the shooting range. Sure enough the Italian athlete has repeated the gold won four years ago in the 50 m rifle 3 positions men by beating Russia's Kamenskiy 458.8 (an Olympic record for the final) to 458.5 in a thrilling final. The man from Tuscany joins the exclusive club of Italian athletes who have won at least three Olympic gold medals: two in a week taking into account the one won on Monday in the 10 m air rifle (whereas in London he got silver). It is the 19th medal in Rio for Italy (7 gold, 7 silver, 5 bronze).
