Right from the start, Norway’s Vebjørn Berg showed that he would be in the running for the medals. Vebjørn was in the lead ahead of the last ten shots, but Rajmond’s final series meant that the Norwegian had to be content with silver.
“I am very happy with my shooting; if others shoot better than me, I’ve still done my best” said Vebjørn Berg after the smoke had blown away from the shooting range.
Eric Uptagrafft from the USA took the bronze on 568 points.
It is interesting to note that the winner Rajmond Debevec certainly is a world-class shooter. Before the Military World Shooting Championships he competed in the Beijing Olympics, winning a bronze medal.
