LONDON: Kim Jang-mi of South Korea set a new Olympic qualification record of 591 points to reach the final of the women's 25-meter pistol Wednesday, beating the 12-year-old previous mark by one point.

Kim scored 298 points in the precision stage before adding 293 in the rapid stage to break the record set by Tao Luna of China at the 2000 Sydney Games.

Kim is the Youth Olympic Games champion and dominated the London World Cup in April on the same Royal Artillery Barracks range. The 19-year-old Kim beat the field by five points with a world record at the World Cup.
