Veronika MAJOR (HUN) could confirm her leading position: she is gold for today, with a total of 380/400 pts. This is always a special emotion to win at home, so she has immediate tears of happiness. She is followed by Galina AVRAMENKO (UKR) with 377/400. Galina was very unsatisfied with her result; she said: “It is a bad result anyway, despite the second place.” It seems that for next ECH she intends to be in better shape. The third place is for Irina IZMALKOVA (RUS) with 375 pts, who was also not satisfied with her today result. Let us be kind with them: despite this first 50m ECH for women, they are competitors and always want to get through to perfection. I am convinced that our Shooting Family should be happy with these demanding athletes.
