Germany defended their 25 metres pistol women's team title at shooting's European Championships 25/50m in Wrocław.

Doreen Vennekamp and Monika Karsch have now won gold in this event four times, and were joined by Michelle Skeries, who contributed to the German team success in 2017 and 2019.

The trio beat Ukraine's Olena Kostevych, Anastasiia Nimets and Oksana Kovalchuk 16-14 in the gold medal match at the WKS Śląsk Wrocław shooting range.

The results mean Germany have now won six gold medals at the Championships - more than any other nation.

Hosts Poland took bronze courtesy of a 16-14 win against Bulgaria.

The second final of the day was in the 50m rifle three positions mixed team event, and it was an all-Norwegian affair.

Jeanette Hegg Duestad and Jon-Hermann Hegg overcame their compatriots Jenny Stene and Simon Claussen 16-14 to take gold.

Stephanie Laura Scurrah Grundsøe and Steffen Olsen of Denmark completed the podium, beating Ukraine's Daria Tykhova and Serhiy Kulish 17-9.

Austria's Sheileen Waibel and Thomas Mathis were the day's other gold medallists, beating Stene and Henrik Larsen of Norway 16-8 in the 50m rifle prone mixed team final.

Chiara Leone and Jan Lochbihler of Switzerland collected bronze, beating Britain's Seonaid McIntosh and Michael Stephen Bargeron 16-12.

The European Championships is set to conclude tomorrow with men's and women's team 50m rifle three positions finals, and the decider in the 25m rapid fire pistol men's team event.
