ECH2013 is slowly but steadily getting started at Odense Congress Center. The first day proved to be a rush hour of newly arrived competitors from countries all around Europe who got settled at the hotels around Odense and spent their free-time at the equipment control booth and on the shooting ranges. The intensity is rising as the competitions and finals are getting closer by the hour.
Marksmen from all of Europe arrived to the OCC yesterday to attend the obligatory equipment- and weapons control. A process most marksmen go through with great excitement.
After getting their equipment checked and confirmed the marksmen were able to train on the shooting ranges to get used to the conditions on the temporary shooting ranges inside the OCC. The athletes were standing side by side amongst friends and rivals. It’s a set-up that demands great concentration and self-control.
In the late afternoon the participants were escorted home to their hotels in Odense where they were able to recharge their batteries and prepare for the long and physically demanding week.
We will update on further events and results on the webpage the whole week.
