Gold medals for Ivanovskaia, Filler and Tangudd

Surprising results in the finals

Sarajevo, Bosnia & Hercegovina: While the favored player won the pupil’s division, the winners in the other division were a bit of a surprise.
The pupil’s division was dominated by Joshua Filler (GER). He was never really endangered and made his¬†way to the title with a superior performance. His opponent in the final match, Oliver Szolnoki (HUN) did his best to challenge Filler and make his life as hard as possible but in in the end he had to let Filler take the crown with a 6:4 victory in the final.

In the girl’s match, the favored player got beaten. Kamila Khodjaeva (BEL) who has already¬†snatched the crown in 10-ball this week, played a close match with Veronika Ivanovskaia (GER). Both girls did not want to show any weaknesses but the pressure was on for both of them. Some small mistakes were committed on both sides but Ivanovskaia managed to get back on track first. She got back in the zone and made use of the chances that Khodjaeva gave her. A missed ball in the eighth rack opened the doors for Ivanovskaia to claim her first title at European Championships with 5:3 over Khodjaeva.
In the junior’s division, Seroshtan was trailing to Tangudd from the beginning of the match. Tangudd played rock solid and won the match clearly and deservedly with 7:3.
The Dynamic Billard EPBF European Youth Championships will continue tomorrow morning at 09:00 CET with the 9-ball individuals.
