Serbia edged out Norway to top the overall standings at the European 10-metres Shooting Championships in the Estonian capital of Tallinn.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic silver medallist Damir Mikec claimed Serbia's first title held at The Ring Sport and Spa Center in the men's air pistol final.

He dispatched double continental champion Ruslan Lunev of Azerbaijan 17-13 in the decider.

Despite failing to make the final round, Italy's Paolo Monna still managed to finished on the podium with bronze after coming third in the ranking match.

His 249.6 points left him 0.9 better off than Jason Solari of Switzerland.

Double world gold medallist Zorana Arunović then combined with Mikec to deliver Serbia's second title of the Championships.

The pair cruised past Italians Chiara Giancamilli and Federico Nilo Maldini 17-9 in the crucial match of the mixed team air pistol.

It was not as dominant a victory as their compatriots Milutin Stefanovic, Milenko Sebic, and Lazar Kovacevic managed, however.

The trio annihilated Austria's Alexander Schmirl, Tobias Mair, and Martin Strempfl 16-2 in the men's team air rifle final.

Serbia ended level with Norway's total of three gold medals but two silvers for the former made the difference.

One Serbian silver was dealt by Norwegians Katrine Lund, Jenny Stene, and hat-trick hero Jeanette Hegg Duestad in the women's team air rifle final.

They snatched a tight 17-15 win over Teodora Vukojević, Andrea Arsović, and London 2012 silver medallist Ivana Maksimović Anđušić.

Duestad won another gold, this time with Jon-Hermann Hegg, in the mixed team air rifle contest following a 16-10 triumph against Israelis Olga Tashtchiev and Sergey Richter.

The 24-year-old Duestad won a stunning third in the women's individual air rifle as she carried over her dominant form to beat Britain's Seonaid McIntosh of Britain 16-10.
