Semianova and Alipov, competing as Russia 1, topped qualifying and then duly defeated home pair Ahmed Zaher and Maggy Ashmawy in the final.

Russia 1 hit 41 of 50 targets in the final as darkness descended over Egypt's capital, with Alipov leading the way and missing only thrice.

Egypt 1 has 34 of 50 targets - down from qualifying scores of 48, 44 and 46.

While Semianova is just 18, 45-year-old Alipov won a solo gold medal at the Athens 2004 Olympics, and bronze four years later in Beijing.
