European Youth League Championship – North Region Qualification

Young athletes from Lithuania, Poland and Sweden can now, thanks to excellent performance, prepare for the European Youth League Championship Final in Hungary in October.

14 teams from the North Region entered the Qualification Round for this years European Youth League Championship. 10 teams were eligible to take part in the Qualification Round in Aarhus, Denmark, where they fought for the places to the EYLCH Final in Budapest, Hungary in October.

42 young athletes from 7 nations travelled to Aarhus together with their coaches to compete in four matches each during the weekend 18-11 of April. The Rifle teams came from Estonia, Finland, Norway, Poland and Sweden. The Pistol teams represented Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden.

The Swedish Rifle team was once again outstanding winning all 4 matches, just like in 2017 and 2018. They will be accompanied by Poland to the Final in Hungary. Lithuania won 3 matches in the Pistol competition and together with Poland they are now qualified to the Final in Hungary.

The Danish Shooting Union and the Organizing Committee in Aarhus proved to be very experienced organizer. We all enjoyed a wonderful spring in Denmark with warm and sunny weather. The hospitality was just as warm and welcoming. On behalf of the ESC Presidium I would like to express my warm thanks and appreciation to the Competition Manager Anders Sode and his team for excellent work. Many thanks also to the Danish Shooting Union.

It was a great pleasure to follow the exciting competitions during the weekend and I would like to congratulate all athletes. Not only those who can now look forward to the Final. In fact all participants deserve our appreciation – for excellent performance in friendship and fair play.
