7th European Open Championships
July 4, 2015 Tromso Norway
France’s Philippe Cronier & Sylvie Willard wake up today as the new European Open Mixed Pairs Champions. They were always in the top two and a fine last session saw them finish almost two tops clear. It was Philippe’s sixth medal and Sylvie’s ninth.
A powerful run brought the combination from Monaco & Norway, Geir Helgemo & Aase Langeland into second place, giving the Norwegian her second medal.
Third place went to Russia’s Andrey Gromov & Victoria Gromova, their second and third medals respectively.
The EBL Open Pairs Cup went to Marco ter Laare & Linda Molle of the Netherlands.
A special mention for Norway’s Sofie Sjodal & Sven Hoyland, who scored 75.26% in the last session of the Mixed Final – and Sofie is just 13 years old – remember her name!
