This was Shaikha Latifa’s second silver medal at the Asian Games following her team silver in the same event on Monday.

“I’m crying because I’m so happy,” said Shaikha Latifa, after the UAE took silver following a jump-off to beat Hong Kong on Monday. “When I first learned we had to compete in an extra round, I felt so nervous,” added the woman, who was a bronze medallist in the 2006 Asiad in Doha.

The UAE had already been amongst the medals in Guangzhou with Juma bin Dalmouk Al Maktoum winning a silver in double trap shooting.
