Shooting Michael Kleemann Armbrust / Crossbow

Scroll down for English version

 

 

For ein paar Tagen hatte ich die Möglichkeit Michael beim Armbrustschießen abzulichten.
Für mich war es sehr beeindruckend und interessant diesen Sport und Michael kennen zu lernen.
Hier noch ein paar worte über Ihn und seiner Erfahrungen mit diesen Sport:

 

Seit meinen achten Lebensjahr schieße ich leidenschaftlich mit dem
Luftdruckgewehr. Da es nach sechs Jahren doch ein bisschen einseitig wurde
probierte ich auch das Armbrustschießen aus und es begeisterte mich schnell.
Warum genau Armbrustschießen? Diese Art im Schießsport ist eine sehr auf
Konzentration und Beherrschung aufbauende Art zu schießen. Doch obwohl ich
viel Erfahrung hatte fing mir der Anfang hier nicht leicht. Nach viel Übung
und Training schaffte ich es in meinen zweiten Jahr in den Österreichischen
Kader zu kommen und durfte sogar bei der Heim EM in Innsbruck 2013
mitschießen. Heuer habe ich bereits meinen ersten internationalen Wettkampf
gewonnen. Derzeit laufen gerade die Vorbereitungen/ Qualifikationen für die
WM in Frankfurt im August.

Some days ago I got the chance to shoot some pictures of Michael during a Crossbow session
It was impressive and interesting for me to get this sport and Michael to know.
Michael was so kind to write some words about his sport:

 

I love to shoot with the air rifle since I was 8. Because after 6 years I got bored a little, I started to shoot with a crossbow -> I really loved it from the beginning. Why crossbow? Because it needs a lot of concentration and control. Although I had a lot of experience, it was not an easy start. After lots of practice, I was able to join the Austrian squad for the EM in Innsbruck 2013. This year I won my first international competition and at this moment I’m preparing for the WM in Frankfurt.
