Richter scored 597 points out of a possible 600 in the early 10-meter air rifle standing competition. But after scoring a perfect 100 points in his first two final sets, he missed a shot and scored 99 points in the third.
His fourth set was perfect, but his fifth left him at a disadvantage. Still, once in the finales Richter was able to add 104.1 points to his score and win the silver medal.
Two other Israelis competed on Saturday as well: Lior Madlal, who scored 588 points and was ranked 57th; and Amy Ben-Heffer, who scored 577 points and was ranked 82nd.
