Tight in men's prone – four athletes made the same result
The 2019 Lapua European Cup Rifle 300m finished today with prone competitions. The men's prone competition was very tight and high-grade while four athletes shot the same results: 599! It was Gilles Dufaux again who took finally the victory while he had most inner tens (49x). The winner of silver in this tight competition was Steffen Olssen (35x) from hosting country Denmark and third was Slovenian “rifle king“ Raimond Debevec (35x). Fourth place took Remi Moreno Flores (33x) from France. The silver medal winner Olssen had better series and that is why he won silver before Debevec. Nice and tight – excellent finish to the Lapua European Cup in Denmark!
