23-year-old gold medalist Yi Siling has only been competing internationally for just over three years. But that’s been enough time for her to win several rifle championships.

Yi’s Olympic Gold adds to her title of reigning world champion in the 10-meter event - a title that she won by getting a record score of 505.6. She also won a string of gold medals at the 2011 ISSF World Cup final series, as well as a silver in the 10-meter air rifle at the London Royal Artillery Barracks -- the venue for this year’s Olympic event.

Yi also finished first at the 2012 Asian shooting championships, following up on the gold she took home from the 2010 Asian Cup.
