At the 2010 EMAU 3D European Championships that were taking place in Sardinia, Italy from 5th – 9th October Falco won two individual medals.
Belgian Serge Verrier won the bronze medal in men’s longbow shooting. Serge uses a custom made Falco Force Carbon Snakeskin backing bow and our Falco Premium Vintage arrows. Serge dictated most of the competetion and won the preliminary rounds overwhelmingly with a result of 164 points. Another great result came in the second elimination round where he shot 111 (0f possible 132). The only falter came when Serge was outshot in a very close duel by the later European Champion Paolo Bucci from Italy. Congratulations to Serge for a great competition!
In female longbow shooting we kept our fingers crossed for one of the most successful shooter of the past years, several time World Champion Giulia Barbaro from Italy. Giulia uses our custom made Falco Premium Vintage arrows. This time Giulia won the silver medal after a thrilling final against Encarna Carrido Lazaro from Spain. Congratulations to Giulia for a great competition as well!
