Australia’s Jason Maroney came second, really challenging Anderson right to the end.
After a tense final, where the lead changed several times, Denmark’s Jonny Andersen won the R4 - 10m - 60 shots air rifle standing SH2 with a new world record score of 207.7 at the 2013 IPC Shooting World Cup (Szczecin) in Poland.
Andersen had the fourth highest qualification score going into the finals, but under new rules, the athletes go into the finals with a zero score, allowing for a much closer competition.
Australia’s Jason Maroney came second, really challenging Anderson right to the end. He finished 0.4 points behind with a final score of 207.4.
Slovenia’s Francek Gorazd Tirsek, who had the highest qualification score, came third with 185.4 points.
In the team event, Slovenia’s team of Damjan Pavlin, Veselka Pevec and Francek Gorazd Tirsek had the highest score of 1883.0. Great Britain (Richard Davies, Adam Fountain and Rober McLeary) finished second on 1867.6 points. Third place went to Ukraine’s team of Vladyslav Biletskiy, Vasyl Kovalchuk, and Pavlo Volynets.
