We ask Quentin Fillon-Maillet few questions:
Quentin, are you satisfied of your race despite your last bullet out?
QF-M: "Before the last shoot I was with Arnd Peiffer, fighting for the 2nd place. I tried to attack my shoot to leave the shooting range with Peiffer but the last bullet were out.
I kept my 3rd place, I’m very satisfied ! This week I got 2 4th place and 1 podium is better than the last season!"
How was the weather condition in Oestersund ? Which lenses did you use?
QF-M: "I used Aero model, I like those sunglasses because the frames don’t move and my face feel well protected.
The individual race and sprint were contested in the end of afternoon, and in Sweden the night fall early. I used Zebra light lenses, good in any conditions !"
