State Championships

This weekend the sport shooting state championships of Lower Saxony started. All in all they last two weeks but I was lucky enough to be done in two days. When I was a teenager, I had to spend 4 days there, now due to the timing of the events, it would take 2-3 days. I was qualified in 5 different competitions but had already decided month ago, that I would not start in the competition '50 meter rifle prone', I have enough problems with my back as it is, so decided it would be better this way. That left me with starts in: 10 meter air rifle, 50meter rifle 3 positions, 100 meter rifle and 15meter rifle.

10 meter rifle and 15 meter rifle where held on Monday and on Sunday I had starts in 50 meter rifle 3 positions and 100 meter rifle. Unfortunately the start times overlapped and I decided to only start in 50 meter rifle 3 positions. Due to injury on my arm I didn't train for the last 6-8 weeks, so I had no idea where I would stand but then I am not as competitive as when I was a teenager. Overall I am satisfied with the results I achieved, especially considering I had a 12 year break from sport shooting, so this was a great comeback.
