He shot an impressive series of 99, 99, 100, 99, 100 and 99 to equal his Beijing Games qualification score of 596 out of 600, which fetched him the Olympic gold last year.

The competition at Munich is important for all the shooters who are eyeing the Olympic qualification quotas at the World Shooting Championship to be held at the same venue in July.
