On Friday Women and Men started their competitions. Their first event was the Air Rifle Mixed Teams.
From the Qualification six best teams continued to the Medal Matches: Norway 1 (630.5) and Israel (629.3) to the Gold Match and Norway 2 (629.3), Germany 1 (628.9), Italy (628.8) and Sweden (627.7) to the Bronze Matches.
The Gold Match was very tight and it looked that Israel will handle the match easily while they won the three first shots, situation was already 6-0 for Israel, but then after the Norway´s timeout it started to happen, not quickly but surely and after few moments the situation was 10-10. Israel took timeout, when Norway passed Israel first time (12-10), but it didn´t help. Norway won the last shots and victory for Norway with results 16-10. The Norwegian Team consisted of Jeanette Hegg Duestad and Jon-Hermann Hegg.
In the Bronze Match 1 Italy beat Germany clearly 16-6 and in the Bronze 2 Norway 2 was even more superior by beating Sweden 16-2.
