As soon as Dorte Thorsen put down her air pistol she was greeted with a birthday song by the surrounding audience. It’s a rare occasion that you have your birthday on a championship day. Even though she didn’t give herself a great birthday present – qualifying for the finals -she wasn’t disappointed with her performance. She completed her air pistol session with a total of 356 points.

 

The Danish on-lookers were following another Danish shooter closely but Susanne Meyerhoff just missed the cut. She finished on 9th place with a total of 380 points.

The third Danish shooter Christina Engstrøm ended in a 54th place with a total of 351 points.
