Christian Reitz (born 29 April 1987) is a German 25 metre rapid fire pistol shooter, the current world record holder.

Career[edit]

He rose to fame during 2005, the first year with the new equipment rules, but was defeated in that year's European Junior Championships by teammate Philipp Wagenitz before finishing his junior career with victories in the 2006 ISSF World Shooting Championships and the 2007 European Championships.[citation needed]

In his first year as a senior,[when?] Reitz won two World Cup competitions and was the runner-up behind three-time Olympic champion Ralf Schumann at another, equalling the world record with a 591 score in Milan, and raising Schumann's final world record from 790.0 to 794.0.[citation needed] At the 2008 Olympics, he won the bronze medal behind Oleksandr Petriv and Schumann.[1]
