Hanoi (dpa)- The Vietnamese government on Sunday hailed the country‘s first ever Olympic Games gold medallist Hoang Xuan Vinh, after he won the men‘s shooting 10m air pistol final in Rio de Janeiro.

"This is the first time Vietnam sport has won an Olympic gold medal, and, more than that, this is the first time we have broken an Olympic record on the final shot in the men‘s 10m air pistol," said sport minister Nguyen Ngoc Thien on his ministry‘s website.

"This victory was thanks to the courageous spirit and determination of the coaches, and Vinh," he said .

The 41-year-old shooter‘s victory ended the country‘s six-decade long wait for its first Olympic gold medal.

In a close final, Vinh scored 202.5 points to pass local favourite Felipe Wu from Brazil, who recorded 202.1 points, with his final shot.

Vinh is set to receive around 3.2 billion Vietnamese dong (150,000 dollars) in bonuses for the win, local newspaper Tuoi Tre reported.
