10m Pistol: U21 . Finalists
Young shooters up to the age of 13 competed in the Youth Singles 10m Pistol Final. Small squad shooter Patrick Rogley rose to prominence.
While the birds were already tweeting outside, on March 27, 2022, bowlers from all over Switzerland arrived in Schwadernau to make their way to the final in Bernese Sealand.
