Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Senior and youth teams of shooting are taking part in the 13th Asian Shooting Championship which is continuing in Kuwait. The events have attracted 1,500 shooters from 32 countries.

In the women’s 25m pistol team contest on Wednesday, a Mongolian team--O.Gundegmaa, Ts.Monkhzul and T.Gantuul--won a bronze medal, following South Korea and China. The same day, a youth team with T.Zoljargal, O.Yesugen and E.Enkhmaa captured a bronze medal in the women's 50m Rifle Prone.
