German teams will shoot for gold at European Championship
With three World Cup wins and now, contending for the Gold Medal Finals at the European Championship in Armenia this week, Germany’s recurve squad has had a great season. In women’s recurve, Karina WINTER and Elena RICHTER are second and 4th respectively in the qualification round seeding for the finals later in the week.
Like nearly all the recurve contenders at the event, Germany’s recurve shooters choose to shoot Easton’s legendary X10 arrow shafts.
Other top qualifiers include Jeff HENCKLES (LUX), Germany’s Florian KAHLLUND, and Viktor RUBAN (UKR) in men’s recurve, and Karina LIPIARSKA (POL), Tatyana SEGINA (RUS) in women’s recurve,
Albina LOGINOVA (RUS) and Sophie DODEMONT (FRA) were among the top qualifers in women’s compound, and Mike SCHLOESSER (NED), Peter ELZINGA (NED) and P.J. DELOCHE (FRA) qualified high in the hotly contested men’s compound category.
The event wraps up at the end of this week, and our Dean ALBERGA will be bringing us more great photos as the event progresses.
