Helena 5th best 9-ball pool player in Europe

Helena Benjamin, Mikkelsen Electronics’ sales representative in Sweden, came very close to a medal when she participated in the European Championships in pool in Zagreb. In the semifinals she lost 4-7 to the Austrian Gerda Hofstätter. Ms Hofstätter is a full-time professional player and Helena “just” an amateur so Helena is pleased with her result as no 5 out of 53 players.

Participants from 36 countries were gathered in Zagreb and 25 countries were represented in the ladies division.

Helena has also received a reward in the Town Hall in Stockholm from Stockholms Stad (the City of Stockholm) for the gold she won last year in the Swedish championships in snooker
