    Pennsylvania-native Jamie (Beyerle) Gray was right on the mark Saturday morning when she set an Olympic final record on her way to gold in Women’s 50-Meter Rifle, 3 Positions.

    Gray, who hails from Lebanon, took an Olympic record in qualification (592) into the final where she scored a 99.9 for a final score of 691.9 easily holding off challenges from Serbia’s Ivana Maksimovic and Czech Republic’s Adela Sykorova.
