On October 23, local time, in the 2022 Shooting (Rifle) World Championships Women's 25m Pistol Team Event Competition held in Cairo, Egypt, Liu Rui, an athlete from Changde Sports School, cooperated with her teammates Chen Yan and Xiao Jia Rui Xuan to beat India 16:0 and won the team championship.

Liu Rui was born in Group Two of Hequyu Village, Xinpu Township, Shimen County. 13-year-old Liu Rui was selected from the former Yongxing School (now Siyuan School) in Shimen County to enter the Changde Sports School shooting team for training in July 2013. In February 2015, Liu Rui entered the Hunan Provincial Shooting Team for training and is now a member of the Chinese National Shooting Team. On September 18, 2021, Liu Rui participated in the 14th National Games shooting women's 25-meter sport pistol final in Xi'an, winning the gold medal in the event with a total score of 42 points by winning back-to-back victories over the Fujian and Anhui teams.

"She withstood the pressure and the competition." Changde Sports School shooting team coach Gao Xuan told reporters that in the slow shooting part of the individual competition at this World Championships, Liu Rui actually did not play well and was not in the right state, but, after just a few hours of adjustment, she was able to participate in the team competition again in her best condition and finally took the title with a score of 16:0.

After winning the championship, Liu Rui sent a message to Gao Xuan at the first time. She said that when she saw the national flag-raising for her teammates’ performance in 2018, she secretly resolved and finally realize the dream of enabling the national anthem to play and the national flag to rise in her name this time.
