Jo Jeong-du has clinched the only gold medal available on day four of the Para Shooting World Championships in Al Ain.

The South Korean produced a strong showing throughout the men's 10 metres air pistol SH1 final before setting the highest score in three of the last five rounds to secure victory in the United Arab Emirates.

Despite losing the last round, he recorded an overall score of 235.7 to fend off Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Szymon Sowiński of Poland on 233.1 points.

Uzbekistan's Server Ibragimov rounded out the top three with 213.3 points to add the world bronze to his third-place finish from Rio 2016.
