Christoph Schipflinger and Stefan Winder from Austria were the best of all teams and won the gold medal. The silver medal was for Wilhelmiina Saarijärvi and Hermanni Huuskonen from Finland. The Dutch team Twan Geven and Willem Mateman won the bronze medal. There was also a medallion for excellence for the teams of France, Hungary and Denmark. ELCA wants to congratulate the teams with their great work and beautiful result.
