Recently, a big event took place in the PistenBully Biathlon Center in Ulm-Dornstadt in Germany. On the agenda: Finding the next holder of the challenge cup for the best team of the PistenBully Cup for Elementary Schools.
Many elementary school children participated this year in the qualification competitions in the individual schools. The best were contesting to win the challenge cup. They again had to show different skills on funny courses and had to prove their marksmanship when shooting with a laser rifle.
For the first time, there was also a second competition: Olympic winner Fritz Fischer, the trainer for the national youth team, Ilmar Heinicke, and the trainers of the federal states were looking for the "ShootingStar 2018" among the best eight girls and eight boys. The winners received attractive prizes, among others a trip to a biathlon event in the football stadium of Schalke 04.
A concept that others strive to follow also outside Germany!
