Yang Qian, born in 2000, won the first gold medal of the Tokyo Olympics on July 24 in the women's 10-meter air rifle.

Yang won her second gold of the Games, along with Yang Haoran in the 10m air rifle mixed team event on July 27.

Yang has become one of the most famous celebrities in China not only because she has won the first gold of the Tokyo Olympics, but also for her appearance. The duck and carrot-shaped hairpins she wore during the competitions have become a hot commodity on ecommerce platforms.

"I am very happy. It is special to win an event like this," Yang Qian said, adding that "I thank my country for helping me and giving me all the support."
