Men’s R7-50m Rifle 3 positions SH1: Gold and Bronze
He came, he saw, he conquered. Serbia’s Laslo Suranji celebrated a hard-fought victory to win gold in R7 (men’s 50m rifle 3 positions SH1) on Monday (12 September) after Paralympic legend Jonas Jacobsson failed to qualify for the final. Suranji spoke of his delight after claiming the Paralympic title, describing the moment of victory as “unreal”.
“It took a really long time for me. I’ve trained for over 15 years and this is my first medal,” he said. “It was a lot of teamwork with the coaches. The whole year we always just eat, sleep and shoot, nothing else.”
