BEIJING (AP) Katerina Emmons of the Czech Republic set an Olympic record in 10-meter air rifle qualifying Saturday, shooting a perfect 400.

Emmons, the wife of American shooter Matt Emmons, broke the mark of 399 set four years ago by Russia's Lioubov Galkina. Galkina shot a 399 again Saturday, as did Snjezana Pejcic of Croatia and Du Li of China.
