ISSF World Cup Rifle / Pistol · Fort Benning, USA

Taking advantage of his opponent’s defiance, the 25-year old German shooter won his first ISSF Gold at the 50m Rifle 3 Positions Final in Fort Benning.

Germany’s 25-year old Daniel Brodmeier won today’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions event, at the 2013 ISSF Rifle & Pistol World Cup in Fort Benning, GA, USA.


The German shooter started off the competition with a good kneeling series, and was one of the bests in the changing times between the three positions. Keeping his hart-beats down, Brodmeier turned out to be the most accurate finalist, today. From the prone position, he engaged a neck and neck fight against China’s Kang Hongwei and Russia’s Fedor Vlaslov. Eventually the German shooter moved in the lead on the very last standing competition shot, winning the Gold with a final score of 457.2 points.


Kang didn’t help himself, closing the final with a frustrating 7.2 shot to end up in second place with a final score of 455.7 points.  Kang, 24, had never participated in an ISSF World Cup match, before.


Brodmeier, on the other side, had taken part in 7 ISSF World Cup Stages since 2010, but he had never won Gold before.


The Bronze medal went to Russia’s Fedor Vlaslov, 29. The Russian shooter was eliminated by Brodmeier in a shoot-off, and closed the match with 447.0 points, securing his second ISSF World Cup medal of the year following Changwon’s silver.


The winner of the 10m Air Rifle Men event, China’s Yang Haoran finished in fourth, today, with 436.6 points. He was followed by the second Russian finalist, Nazar Louginets, fifth with 424.5 points.


The 50-year old 2000 Olympic Champion Rajmond Debevec also made it to the final, eventually closing the match in sixth with 414.4 points. France’s Cyril Graff, who had qualified in second place, ended up in seventh, with 400.4 points, while Beijing 2008 Olympic Silver medallist Yuriy Sukhorukov of Ukraine landed in eighth and last place with 399.4 points
