It was expected to be scored low results when the European Elite once again visited Portugal and Vizela for this year’s Europacup. And on the final day some amazing results came and all the men’s concrete records was broken in the end. More of this later.
On the ladies side it was Göttingen that in the end was the winners in the battle between the two German Teams (Mainz and Göttingen). But in the start of the competition there was far more teams included in the top. Both Bystrice pod Hostynem from Czech Republic, Costa Nova from Portugal and Cusano Milanino from Italy was in the top 3 from in the first day.
But on the latter half of the tournament the German Teams proved the best two. Lead by Nicole Piechotta the Göttingen team was in the end stronger than the Mainz team that came without star player Anne Bollrich. Third was Effretikon from Switzerland that was playing better and better along the tournament.
Best individual amongst the ladies was:
Nicole Piechotta, Göttingen, 208 (26,0)
Rebecca Weber, Effretikon, 216 (27,0)
Antonella Flamini, Cusano Milanino, 218 (27,3)
Kathrin Neumann, Mainz, 218 (27,3)
Lucie Pavelková, Bystrice pod Hostynem, 224 (28,0)
In the means class it was expected to be a battle between last year’s winner Uppsala and their main rivals Hardenberg. But in the start of the tournament also GSP Vergiate, Italy and MC Olten, Switzerland was in a close battle with the two giants. In lap 4 Uppsala set a new world record of 148 and all of a sudden they were 20 strokes ahead.
This was to be the winning break for Uppsala, and even if Hardenberg sharpened their game and in the end took over the Uppsala record with a fantastic 144 team round, they could not come that much closer and Uppsala won with 19 strokes. Noteworthy is that Uppsala had 5 in the top 10 list individually and 3 in top 5 and also had 3 blue team rounds below the old world record.
Third team was a bit surprising the Czech team of Tempo Praha. They played better and better and in the seventh round they scored a 147 world record (only lasting for 3 hours) to climb to bronze position. In the last lap it was a close battle between Praha and Vergiate, which in the end was won by a single stroke.
This was much due to the magnificent game by Prahas closer Karel Molnar. In the seventh round he broke a dream record of 19 on a single lap on beton, only missing lane 14.
Best individual amongst the mens was:
Karel Molnar, Tempo Praha, 196 (24,5)
Carl-Johan Ryner, Uppsala, 199 (24,9)
Fredrik Persson, Uppsala, 199 (24,9)
Timo Greiffendorf, Hardenberg, 200 (25,0)
Lars Brown, Uppsala, 200 (25,0)
