At the 2019 European Games in Minsk, David Kostelecky pervailed in the skeet shooting final thus climbing onto the top step of the podium as well as achieving the qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The Czech shooter, Olympic champion at the 2008 Beijing Games, took home the victory after a challenge to the death against the Italian Valerio Graziani. Despite the third place in the qualification (119+2/125), Kostelecky believed in it to the end: in the final phase he concluded with an excellent 44 out of 50, which allowed him to be awarded with the gold medal and establish the record of the event. On the other hand a bitter second place for Graziani, who saw his participation in the next Olympics fading away for just two missed targets.
On this occasion David Kostelecky chose to use the new Titanium chokes, recently available in the catalogue, stating to be "really satisfied" with them.
With this victory the athlete from the Czech Republic joins the shooters using Gemini chokes and who have already qualified for the Olympics: Diana Bacosi (ITA), Chiara Cainero (ITA) and Matt Coward-Holley (GBR). Gemini is ready to support David and all of its athletes at Tokyo 2020!
