Sweden’s juniors rose to tied points with Germany after 7 rounds, but Germany took gold by playing the last beton round 2 points better than Sweden. Austria rose from 4th place to bronze medal in the third competition day, leaving Switzerland 10 points behind to 4th place.

In female juniors the reigning world champion team Czech Republic fell to 4th place, one point behind the bronze team Sweden. Austria took silver 3 points ahead of Sweden, and Germany won gold with a clear 16 points margin to Austria.

Gerrit Britz of Germany kept his first place all the way to the end in preliminary rounds, with average 27.50 on beton and 21.00 on eternite. Roger Wicki of Switzerland was second best, 2 points behind Britz, and 3rd place is tied between Robin Hettrich (Germany) and Filiph Svensson (Sweden), 2 points behind Wicki.

Anne Hempel of Germany was the best player in female juniors, with average 28.25 on beton and 22.75 on eternite. The second place is tied between Karin Heschl (Asutria) and Jana Nakládalová (Czech Republic), only 1 point behind Hempel.

Strokeplay has now ended, after 8 rounds. Tomorrow 16 best female juniors and 32 best male juniors will play a knock-out cup for matchplay medals.

Some of the most positive events on the first three competition days include a new British record of one round beton, 28, played by Rocky Bullin. Also the 6th place of Italian junior Lorenzo Levis, and 14th place of Finnish female junior Mia Paavola, will certainly be highly respected in the home countries of these players.

And you really can consider it a lost gold for Sweden. With three players finished and three out on the course in the final round Sweden was at best leading by three shots. Germany had the better finish and pulled it home at the end respect for that. But also a fat respect for Sweden for giving a harder time to Germany than they ever expected.

As well my congratulations to Team Austria in both categories, as much as I feel for Switzerland for being number four again in boys' competition.

Congratulations also to our fab. Team Austria! 2 Team Medals on the teamevent is much more that we could expect. Nice job also done by swedish boys - making a tight match on german homeground deserves respect.
