Donggi Lee sets new fastest single heat shoot World Record

In the 3-Team Member Men's Relay at the Youth A World Championships in Wuhan China today, Korea's Donggi Lee set a new World Record with the fastest ever single heat shoot with a laser pistol in a Modern Pentathlon competition.

The 18-year-old hit his target five times in the space of just 7.22 seconds before going on to claim the gold medal with his team.

Lee was the last of the South Koreans to go in the Final combined event after Woongtae Jun and Jihun Lee had ensured he was ahead with two laps of the 800m course remaining.

In his second round at the range, he was simply sensational, making no mistake with his pistol as he registered a New World Record with five hits from five shots in a truly incredible time.

In Modern Pentathlon, athletes are required to hit a target with a diameter of just 59.5 millimetres, placed at a distance of 10 metres and they must reload between each shot as well as touch the table with the pistol.
