Exciting 10 Air rifle competition
10 m air rifle men
The men’s competition on 10 m air rifle took place today. The qualifications were very tough, and with the new decimal rules it has become even harder. The Olympic silver medalist Nicco Campriani from Italy qualified to the final with 631, which was 5 points more than the 2nd placed in the qualification.
In the elimination round in the final he shot a 9,4 but that was not enough to stay in the fight for medals and placed him 6th in the final.
In the match for 4th place elimination Juho Kurki from Finland eliminated P. Hellenbrand from The Netherlands with only 0,2 points between the two. Kurki himself secured a bronze medal.
In the fight for gold Bubnovich from Bellarus was up against Sergey Richter from Israel. Even though Richter only shot a 9,5 in the last shot he secured himself the gold medal and therefore the European Championship. Congratulations.
