In the 10m Air Pistol Women Team event, Germany won Silver behind Russia and guess who was in this team? CISM friends Sandra Reitz, Monika Karsch & Carina Wimmer! In the 10m Air Pistol Men Team event, Ukraine won gold with the team of Oleh Omelchuk, followed by Serbia and Germany. In 4th place came Russia with Anton Gurianov and his team. This was another great achievement for these sympathetic CISM athletes!

In The Hague (Netherlands) the Intershoot championship is held every year in February. This 1st, 2nd and 3rd, the Ockenburgh sports hall was filled up to the roof and a few athletes had to be disappointed as the event exceeded it’s capacity. For many years CISM Shooting friends participated in this event, and 2018 is no exception to that rule!
Have a look if you recognise a few shooting sport friends from Brazil, Portugal, India, Japan, Belgium, Norway, Denmark or… (this message will be updated as soon as there are photo albums online)
