Representatives from 28 different nations will start with the competition in 10.30h by local time (9.30h CET).

Few competitors which will compete at the Olympic Games are here to do their final preparations before the biggest event of this year, such as bronze medalist at the European Championships this year Jeroen Mooren (-60, NED), Jaromir Jezek (-73, CZE), Marie Muller (-52, LUX).
