Revision Champion Shooter Max Michel Takes Home First Prize As Only U.S. Competitor In Kongsvinger Open Norway
Essex Junction, VT –-(Ammoland.com)- Max Michel, champion shooter for Revision Eyewear, competed against the world’s top shooters in his first appearance at the Ninth Annual Kongsvinger Open 2010 (Norwegian National Championship) held May 29-30, 2010 in Norway.
Michel, the only U.S. competitor, was the 100% match winner in the Open Division, edging out 59 competitors from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Canada with a final match score of 1198.0456.
The Kongsvinger Open, known as the best match in Norway, is a Level 3 International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) event. It hosts an international shooting style that is different from the U.S. The targets are smaller and the courses of fire are more technical.
“The Norwegian Nationals was an experience of a life time for me,” commented Michel. “Not only was I tested on all skill levels, as I will be at the World Shoot in Greece in 2011, but it is one of the most beautiful countries I have ever seen.”
Max Michel’s next competition is the USPSA Area 5 Championships in Polo, IL on June 10-13, 2010.
