The ISSF World Championships in Granada ended a few days ago. Our Service team is back already and brought sensational results with them.
Above all, JIN Jongoh at the AP60-Competition, who showed once again that he is the best shooter in the world. But persecutors Dikec Yusuf and Vladimir Gontachaorv where hot on the heels and so the competition was exciting until the last shot.
All 3 medals go to STEYR-shooters:
Gold: JIN Jongoh, KOR (STEYR LP 10 E)
Silver: Dikec Yusuf, TUR (STEYR LP 10)
Bronze: Vladimir Gontcharov, RUS (STEYR LP 10)
The two Chinese shooters Pu Qifeng and PANG Wei complete the perfect result and finished at 4 and 5, both with a STEYR
LP 10 E.
Also the result of the Men Junior competition shows who is the Number 1 at the Air pistols. All medals were gained by STEYR-Shooters:
Gold: Alexander Kindig, GER (STEYR LP 10)
Silver: CHOE Boram, KOR (STEYR LP 10 E)
Bronze: Lauris Strautmanis, LAT (STEYR LP 10)

After Sergey Kruglov, RUS, also very nearly missed the chance for a medal with his 4th place at the AR60 competition, the Silver medalist of the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing Hrachik Babayan, ARM, gained again Silver at the Junior competition.
