After a hot week in Mokrice-Catez (SLO) now we know all the winners of European Field Championships 2017.
Let’s start with team competition … Italy was very close to a perfect poker: 3 golds in Men Junior Team, Women Junior Team (European title not assigned) and Women Team, and finally “just” a silver in Men Team, defeated by Germany.
A long day of individual finals to close the event, and again Italy is the best nation winning 14 medals in 14 matches.
In recurve men Marco MORELLO (ITA) is the winner after the 4th place at World Field Champs 2016 and also at European Champs 2015. In the women class again on top of the podium is home archer Ana UMER (SLO), defending title 2015.
In recurve junior men Valentin RIPAUX (FRA) takes a gold confirming his 2015 title; Bryony PITMAN (GBR) is the winner in women class.
