They have won a total of 61 medals, including 27 gold medals 15 individual and 12 team, 17 silver medals 12 individual and 5 team, and 17 bronze medals 12 individual and 5 team.
This result is exceptional, and we congratulate all the shooters heartily for their magnificent achievements.
The muzzleloader shooters are something very special and always highly motivated. Their motto is “where there’s a will, there’s a way,” and they make things fit if they don’t initially match. With this mindset, the German National Team heads to their international competitions. They support each other, and trust is of utmost importance. If there’s an issue, they solve it, sometimes even with the help of other nations. The camaraderie is fantastic, and friendships among the different nations are best described as “simply wonderful.”
The weather showed a side that nobody had expected. Wind speeds of 20 meters per second, shooting targets soaked from rain, making transportation and evaluation difficult. Wind gusts at the 100m range for the women’s event posed a real challenge for prone shooting in German National Team. The shooters were not only tested in terms of nerves but also had to keep their rifles steady under such conditions. During the competition of German National Team, the wind blew so strongly that the supervisors were bundled up while performing their duties. It wasn’t easy; competitions had to be frequently interrupted as the targets became invisible due to heavy rainfall. Shortly afterward, bright sunshine appeared on the targets, posing a significant challenge for the eyes. Everyone was pushed to the limit by the extreme weather conditions.
Thomas Klaner is overjoyed and very proud of his German National Team, as is their coach, Thomas Baumhakl.
