Golden London with ANSCHÜTZ


Golden London with ANSCHÜTZ
The trust in the precision of the products from ANSCHÜTZ was rewarded with the most gold medals and precious metals in shooting (excluding Trap and Skeet).

High-carat sportsmen and sportswomen from virtually all countries in the world were present at the start of this year’s games in London. It all began with a wonderful opening ceremony which we will hold in our memory for many years to come.
This will be a unique experience in their sporting career for many athletes. Many knock-out competitions against their marksman colleagues had to be survived in their own country before being able to ensure participation in these unique and high-carat competitions.

There were sensational successes and, unfortunately, also very bitter and sad defeats in the “very British” weather. It is a privilege for the sportsmen and sportswomen to win a medal with their best result and best equipment. ANSCHÜTZ was really more than just “READY“, as demonstrated by the proud success stories of our athletes who placed their trust in ANSCHÜTZ. The ANSCHÜTZ group of companies achieved almost double as many medals as the next competitor after us.

Often it is just a whisper that decides between success and failure. That’s how it was in the excitedly anticipated finals of the competitions. Once again, ANSCHÜTZ had the advantage and was able to wear the halo, yet again, of the most successful target rifle company. Our heartfelt congratulations to all the athletes that made that possible for us.

In the shooting in the “precision discipline” (smallbore prone), the Belarussian Sergei Martynov won the gold medal with his ANSCHÜTZ smallbore rifle and, at the same time, set 4 new highly respectable records:
  • New final World Record (FWR) with 705.5 rings
  • New Olympic Final Record (FOR) with 705.5 rings
  • Equalised World Record (EWR) with 600 rings and
  • Equalised Olympic Record (EOR) with 600 rings.
Heartfelt congratulations and our greatest respect to the Olympians Sergei Martynov for this extraordinary performance.

In men’s smallbore 3 position competition, 3x40 shots, Jonghyun Kim from Korea won the silver medal, and Matt Emmons from the USA won the bronze medal. What a gripping final. In total, in this category, places 2 to 5 were occupied by ANSCHÜTZ marksmen, which impressively emphasised the dominance at the games in London.

The women were also very successful with ANSCHÜTZ, once again:
There was gold for the American Jamie Lynn Gray in the smallbore 3 position competition 3x20. Jamie also set 2 new highly-respectable records at the same times:
  • New Olympic Final Record (FOR) with 691.1 rings
  • New Olympic Record (OR) with 592 rings.
Bronze was won by the Czech Adela Sykorova with 683 points.

Six of the eight woman finalists were able to beat the opposition with their ANSCHÜTZ rifles.
