Feijen dedicates title to his little daughter

The 9-Ball Champions Jasmin Ouschan, Fred Dinsmore and Niels Feijen
Portoroz, Slovenia: The 9-ball finals in this year's Dynamic Billard European Pool Championships have been played. The new Champions are Niels Feijen (NED), Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) and Fred Dinsmore (IRL).

The men's final match was a contest between two equal players. However, Zoran Svilar (SRB) committed four unnecessary fouls during the final match. That was simply too many when your opponent is "The Terminator" Niels Feijen. Feijen lined up the final 9-ball at 8:6, went to his chair, got a little blues harp out, made some tunes, pocketed the 9-ball and stated: "This is for my Meisje!" Then he blew a big kiss into the camera. His meisje is his 2 1/2 year old daughter Lina that he dedicated this victory to. What a great gesture from a real champion!

In the women's final, Jasmin Ouschan was the dominant player over Line Kjoersvik (NOR). She lead 5:1 and 6:2 and Kjoersvik was never able to endanger her victory. 7:2 was the final result in favor of Ouschan who takes her second Gold Medal this week.

In the wheelchair final, Fred Dinsmore had a tough match with Tony Southern (GBR). At 6:5 for Dinsmore, both players engaged in a safety battle where Dinsmore had the better end on his side. The Irish won the final match with 7:5.
