Grunig sponsored junior shooter, 17 years old Cristian Friman did it again!
In the Junior World Championships in Suhl he took the gold medal after a nerve wrecking final. He took command of the final early in the shooting and managed to keep the lead until the very last shot when a co-competitor managed to tie him. The final result for both was 246,4 points which is a new European record. Then the tie off shot followed where Cristian mastered the conditions with a swift, controlled execution of the shot which was a 10,4 which gave him the world championship with a 0,6 Point margin to his competitor who only fired several second later.
Cristian says that he has learned to appreciate the fact that his rifle seem to shoot through the wind. As if the bullets would drift less than with other rifles. The winning recipe was the same as before; G&E R3 system in Hybrid shaft shooting selected Lapua X-Act ammunition.
He also managed to take team World Championship bronze medal in the 3*40 match with his teammates three days later loosing silver only at the comparison of the last series of the teams.
We are looking forward to continued co-operation with such a talented young athlete in developing the best equipment possible for leading international sportsmen.
