China's shooters continued their London Olympic qualifying campaign at the ongoing ISSF World Championships in Munich Germany.

Two Chinese contenders Guo Wenjun and Su Yuling both qualified for the women's 10m air pistol final with 383 points, but they ranked 6th and 7th.

Guo, however, got off to a good start in the first several rounds, but faltered later on, finishing 7th place, with 480.8 points and failing to qualify for the London Games in 2012.

Her teammate, though, Su had a chance to advance and did. She eventually led Guo only by 0.2 points to finish 6th, which was good enough for her to earn a ticket to London.

Serbia's Zorana Arunovic claimed gold in the category with 486.8 points.
