Ebersdorf b. Co./fichtelberg/dortmund – once again, the two senior performance guards from ebersdorf showed what they are made of!
As the fifth with 314,0 rings (average. 10,466 rings x 30 shots!) in the preliminaries among 74 participants in her competition class ‘senior women C’ qualified karin barth for the final and fought there at the end highly concentrated among eight finalists with her ebersdorfer and neubauer club mate karin eckardt (with 314.5 R. At place 2 in the qualifying round) the top step of the podium! After the competition, both of them were a little bit worried about their results, because they were below their usual standard, but in the end they made it to the finals.
FINAL FACT: while karin barth (253.6 final rings) was hardly in danger of advancing to her german championship, karin eckardt (251.0 FR) had to fight hard until the end for second place and in the end deservedly won her silver medal with a gap of only 0.3 rings to the third-place finisher!
The fact that the two guardian sisters have been competing for a long time as air rifle benchrest starters of the upper franconian guardian district sud does not diminish the general joy about this double success among their ebersdorf club mates and guardian brothers in any way! They express their heartfelt appreciation to their two "success mads" for such nerve-racking achievements and wish both karins continued good shooting for the SG ebersdorf 1883 and at the SG tell neubau!
