Peeter Olesk continued his victories in Tallinn

The third round of the 25m Lapua Cup Estonia 2022 started in Tallinn Männiku Shooting Centre.

Estonian Peeter Olesk continued his victories in Männiku after winning The Ranno Krusta Memorial on Friday.  Krusta was Olesk’s former coach. The Memorail competition was competed in 25m Rapid Fire Pistol event. Today on Saturday 9th July Olesk ruled the 25m Center Fire Pistol Men. 30 athletes from eight countries will participate the Lapua Cup in Tallinn.

Peeter Olesk was leading the competition already after precision stage with result 294 (97+98+99). On the second place was Latvian Rihkards Zorge (293) and on the third position Estonian Reijo Virolainen (293).

Olesk ruled his nerves into the end and won finally the competition. When two series of the rapid stage had been shot on the top place was Slovenian Joze Ceper and Peeter Olesk with the same result. In the last serie Olesk made 99 points when Ceper only 95. Ceper was finally fourth when Latvian Emils Vasermanis and Estonian Virolainen passed Ceper too.

The Olesk’s victory result was 586 (294+292), Silver medalist Vasermanis made 582 (289+293) and bronze medalist Virolainen made the same result 582 (293+289), but he lost the silver with the number of inner tens (Vasermanis 15 x, Virolainen 12x).

- Someway I was very excited during the whole competition, I don’t know why. Fortunately everything went well, said the winner Peeter Olesk and was a little bit surprised when his fiancé came and kissed him.
