Sport shooter Peter Sidi this past Thursday for Romania won the gold medal at the European Shooting Sport Championship in Osijek, Croatia, in the 300m rifle three positions event. Sidi won the event with 593 points all told, a new European record. With 588 points, his runner-up shooter was Austria’s Bernhard Pickl, with third-placed came Swiss shooter Gilles Dufaux, with 585 points.

Peter Sidi as an absolute first represented Romania; we recall the International Shooting Sport Federation granted Sidi the participation right. We recall Peter Sidi was a world champion for Hungary in 2010.

U-BT Cluj-Napoca have won Romania’s basketball championship. On Thursday, Mihai Silvăşan’s trainees outclassed CSM CSU Oradea, with a 4-1 win on aggregate. The final fixtures were played according to the best-in-seven- games system. The winner of the final proper was U-BT Cluj-Napoca, in the match hosted by Cluj Napoca’s Multi-Purpose Sports hall, 97 to 89, with 10,000 fans attending.

The host team’s most efficient basketball player was the American Bryce Jones, with 22 points. CSM CSU Oradea’s best basketball player was the naturalized American Kristopher Jameil Richard, with 25 points, 3 recoveries and 4 assists. It was the sixth title in a row that went to U-BT Cluj Napoca. At the end of the previous season, U-BT succeeded a 4-2 win on aggregate. We recall that back then CSM CSU Oradea won the first two fixtures.

On Saturday and Sunday, Dinamo Bucharest men’s handball team will take part in the EHF Europa League’s final tournament, Romanian title holders on Sunday take on German side Flensburg, in the first semifinal. The other semifinal is an all-German confrontation, since trophy holders Fuchse Berlin take on Rhein-Neckar Löwen. The finals are scheduled on Sunday. Dinamo proved its mettle as a final tournament team having outclassed Danish opponents Skjern Handbold in the quarterfinals.

Romanian tennis players Sorana Cîrstea, Ana Bogdan, Jaqueline Cristian and Irina Begu know who their opponents are, in the first round at Roland Garros, the year’s second Grand Slam tournament, after the drawing of lots in Paris, this past Thursday.
