The European Championship finished with World Record made by German Jolyn Beer

Jolyn Beer finished her “job” in the European Championship with the best ever way, she made a new World Record and won the European Championship. The new record result is now 1181!

"I'm very-very happy. I slept very badly last night and I don't know why. Probably I was a little bit nervous. This was third time when I shot 300m 3 Positions and now it managed so well. Generally shooting was good. In the end it started to wind a little and I have to concentrate more carefully, but it didn't disturb me", explained the new World record holder German Jolyn Beer.

Beer's series were following: 397 kneeling, 397 prone and 387 standing – totally 1181! Switzerland won the other medals: silver by Andrea Bruelhmann (1176: 393-396-387 ) and bronze by Silvia Guignard Schnyder (1175: 395-397-383).
