Vietnam Just Won Its First Ever Olympic Gold Medal

After competing in the Olympic Games for 64 years, Vietnam has finally earned its first ever gold medal thanks to 41-year-old Hoàng Xuan Vinh. The military officer won the men’s 10 meter air pistol event Saturday to make history for his home country.

Vinh was neck in neck with Brazil’s Felipe Almeida Wu during the final round, but ultimately prevailed with a score of 202.5, beating Wu by just 0.4 points.
