Team Leupold pro Doug Koenig continued this summer's winning streak and took home his fifth European Bianchi Cup in Philippsburg, Germany. Due to travel issues, Koenig arrived late, forcing him to shoot each event solo. Even so, he managed to shoot a perfect score of 1920 and 182 center "X" hits.

“Doug continues to amaze and astound us with his unflappable demeanor and accuracy,” said Leupold & Stevens senior manager of advertising and communications Mike Slack. “Many competitors cannot handle a change in their routines, but Doug was unfazed, as usual.”

The European Bianchi Cup is modeled after the match held in the United States, which Koenig has won 15 times. Four stages highlight different skill sets, from the falling plates to the barricades to the practical and the moving target event.
