He first became Paralympic champion in the mixed 10-metre air rifle event, class SH2, then won his second gold in the mixed 50-metre rifle event, class SH2. “This is the dreamof every athlete, to win a Olympic medal. Since 2017 and the World Cup in Osijek, the European Championships, two world championships, several world cups - I came home from all of these competitions with a gold medal. This is the crowning of that work,” said Ristić. He won with a result of 255.5 points, setting a new Paralympic record in the process. “In the final, everything somehow went fast; we didn't have time to think. When the first five bullets proved to be exceptional, I felt that I could and would succeed, not only to win a medal, but to win gold. I was ready for both the air rifle and the small calibre rifle. When I found myself on the firing line, I said to myself: ‘When, if not now?’ It would have been a pity if I hadn’t managed to reach a medal, after all the training and domestic competitions,” added Ristić. OBE ZLATNEMEDALJEOSVOJIO JE STRELAC DRAGAN RISTIĆ. On je najpre postao olimpijski šampion u disciplini vazdušna puška 10 metara miks, klasa SH2, a drugo zlato osvojio je u disciplini vazdušna puška 50 metara, klasa SH2. – San svakog sportiste je da osvoji olimpijsku medalju. Od 2017. godine i Svetskog kupa u Osijeku, Evropskog prvenstva, dva svetska prvenstva, nekoliko svetskih kupova – sa svih tih takmičenja došao sam sa zlatnom medaljom. Ovo je kruna tog rada – rekao je Ristić. Pobedio je rezultatom 255,5 krugova, što je novi paraolimpijski rekord. – U finalu je sve išlo nekako brzo, nismo imali vremena da razmišljamo. Kada je prvih pet metaka bilo izvanredno, osetio sam da mogu i da ću uspeti ne samo da osvojim medalju već i zlato. Bio sam spreman i za vazdušnu pušku i za malokalibarsku. Kada sam stao na liniju, rekao sam – kad, ako ne sad? Bilo bi šteta da nisam uspeo da dođem do medalje posle svih treninga i domaćih takmičenja – dodao je Ristić.
