“It is a totally different experience and feeling of satisfaction for sure,” said Jake Kaminski, one of two returning team members who also won silver at the 2012 Games in London. “It went as well as we possibly could have made it.

The South Koreans shot six straight bull’s-eyes to open the gold-medal match at the Sambodromo. Led by Woojin Kim, South Korea finished with 15 of its 18 shots registering a 10 on the official scorecard.
