Veteran marksman Pang Wei, born in 1986, added another gold medal to his Olympic haul on Tuesday, and the 35-year-old is not ruling out shooting for more glory at the 2024 Paris Games.

His victory alongside 21-year-old Jiang Ranxin in the 10-meter air pistol mixed team competition gave Pang his second medal of the Games, following his bronze in Saturday's individual event.

That took his total Olympic medal count to four, having pocketed gold at Beijing 2008 and bronze at Rio 2016.

"Just let me enjoy this moment a little bit and then I will see where my career can go," Pang said.

"This gold medal means significantly more for my career. Being able to stand on top of the podium again after experiencing ups and downs for so long speaks a lot for my improvement, technically and mentally."
