The European Cartridge Shooting Sport Championships are underway in Croatia’s Osijek. The competition kicked off on May the 20th and will draw to a close later this week. Four Romanian shooters have registered for the competition: Peter Sidi, Roxana Sidi, Dragomir Iordache and Răzvan Andrei Rizea.

Peter Sidi was last week’s performer as on Wednesday Peter won the bronze medal in the 300m rifle prone event. Sidi was outclassed by Slovenia’s Rajmond Debevec, who walked home with gold, and by Austrian Alexander Schmirl, who won silver. On Thursday, Peter Sidi won the gold medal in the 300m rifle 3 positions. All told, Sidi had 593 points, a new European record. His runner-up was Austrian shooter Bernhard Pickl, while third-placed was Gilles Dufaux of Switzerland.

For his noteworthy performance, Radio Romania International has designated Peter Sidi the Athlete of the week.

In Osijek, Peter Sidi represented Romania as an absolute first, since the International Shooting Sport Federation granted Sidi the right to participate in competitions.

For a good number of years Sidi competed for Hungary. He was born on September 11, 1978, in the Hungarian locality of Komárom. Peter Sidi took up shooting sport at the age of 16. When he was 20 he was proving his mettle in seniors’ competitions already, being placed in good positions in major competitions.

Concurrently, Sidi’s run was also way above par in world crossbow shooting competitions; Peter Sidi even won world titles in such events.

Over 2000 and 2016, Peter Sidi participated in five editions of the Olympic Games, in rifle shooting sport. Over 2002 and 2015 he won seven European titles in various events. Hover, Peter Sidi’s major performance occurred in Munich in 2010, when he won the world title in the 50m rifle 3 positions event. His wife, Roxana Sidi, is Romanian. Both athletes are signed up by Steaua Bucharest Army Club.
