LUOYANG, China, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Tang Shuai from Shandong province defeated Jin Di from Shanghai in a final shoot-off following a 57-hit tie, winning the men's skeet at the 13th Chinese National Games in central China's Yiyang county on Thursday.

Tang, 30, tied Jin with 57 targets out of 60 in the final, before they entered a shoot-off in which Jin missed the 16th shot.

"It's extremely exciting, I'm so nervous that my heart beat so fast. That's one of the most memorable games in my life," said Tang.

"Chance played an important role in shooting, so I dare not think too much," added the four-time National Games athlete.

"Jin is a veteran, and we have been training together in the national team for many years, and we both tried our best," said Tang.

Dun Yueheng from Liaoning claimed the bronze with 46 hits.

The 13th Chinese National Games will officially run from Aug. 27 to Sept. 8 in Tianjin, but trap and skeet shooting events are being held in Yiyang.
