Russia's Anastasija Galashina won a pulsating women's 10m air rifle final as junior action continued at the European Shooting 10 metres Championships in Györ today.
This followed a titanic battle with Sarah Hornung of Switzerland and Germany's Teresa Tripp.
With 15 shots taken, Tripp held a narrow lead of just 0.1 over Galashina on the Hungarian range.
In the 17th round, however, she could only manage a 9.4 as the Russian maintained her consistency to edge ahead.
She eventually held on to finish on 206.9, one point clear of Hornung, who shot a superb 10.7 to overhaul Tripp in the final stages.
Serbia claimed the corresponding team event with a score of 1239.4 from Milica Babic, Sanja Vukasinovic and Marija Kolarevic to beat Russia by 2.7 points.
Germany took bronze a further point back.
The nation then sealed a virtually perfect day with team victory as the duo teamed up with Alexander Bassariev to win with 1724 points, 19 clear of second-placed Ukraine.
Germany finished a further five points back with bronze.
Hungary's Veronika Major and Istvan Peni claimed the mixed team pistol competition with a thrilling 5-4 victory over Poland's Agata Nowak and Patryk Sakowskiand.
Russia edged Slovenia for bronze.
Viktoria Hurai and Istvan Peni also claimed a 5-4 host nation win over Switzerland in the mixed team rifle event after Israel had won 5-0 over The Netherlands.
Action begins at senior level tomorrow, with six Olympic berths set to be decided when the women’s 10m air rifle and men’s pistol competitions are staged.
