Austrian Bernhard Pickl shot a new World Record in Tolmezzo

Tolmezzo saw this morning already the 10th World Record when Austrian Bernhard Pickl won the 300m Standard Rifle with result 591 (197 kneeling, 199 prone, 195 standing).

When Pickl was finishing his shooting the audience was waiting his last shot: is he able to make a new record. And he did it, even his last shot was only eight (8).

«Incredible feeling. This was a very hard competition for me. I was the only Austrian who could pass the Elimination. It made more pressure too. During the last week my shooting has not been on the best level. I have had to travel a lot and yesterday I got a little bit sick too, but now I can’t tell you how I feel now. This is incredible», tried the world record breaker to explain his feelings.

Swedish Karl Olsson equaled the old record by shooting 590 (198-200-192). Norwegian Simon Claussen made the result 589 and won bronze with the better number of inner tens before Hungarian Istvan Peni.
