Home duo Ruslan Lunev and Nigar Nasirova secured gold in the mixed team 10-metre air pistol at the Islamic Solidarity Games in Baku on Wednesday.
The Azerbaijani sharpshooters saw off Wadha Al Balushi and Ismail Al Abrai of Oman as they took an early lead and never looked like letting it go, easily winning 5-2.

It was a fifth shooting gold medal of the Games for Lunev, the other four coming in individual events.

In an all-Iran third place playoff, Haniyeh Rostamiyan and Vahid Golkhandan edged out Golnoush Sebghatollahi and Mohammad Ahmadi to claim bronze.
