George Digweed won the European FITASC Championship at Konopiste, the very famous hunting Estate near Prague over the weekend of 23rd-26th May; to take his tally of European FITASC titles up to an amazing 13.
George shot 49/50 on the first day and 48/50 on the second day, to leave him with a tally of 97/100.
He added a 47/50 on the third day to leave him in joint first place, tied with Frenchman Bastien Havart on 144, with two shooters, Englishman Andy White and Spanish shooter Juan Valero on 143.
This set up an intriguing final day, and with deteriorating weather conditions, anybody ‘north’ of 140 had a realistic chance of victory.
Both Digweed and Havart started fairly early on the last day, and both started with 22/25, effectively opening the door for the following pack, but in the second round, a 21/25 from Havart saw him finish on 187, and a good 25 straight from Digweed saw him finish on 191/200.
A total he said: “I would not want to go and shoot again”.
