At the Paralympics in Tokyo on Friday, South Korean shooter Shim Young-jip won bronze in the 50 meter, three positions event.
He finished with a total of 442.two points to earn his first Paralympic medal.
Shim competed at the 2012 London Paralympics but came just short of a medal in fourth place.
The three positions event takes two hours and 45 minutes so it's also called the "rifle marathon."
Eight people are in the final round, each taking 45 shots.
