European Championships 2017

What's not to like about these two? Lorenzo De Luca and the beautiful Armitages Boy take a look at the combination at 12ab, that caused a lot of headache in the opening round. Unfortunately, it fell for this pair as well dropping them down on the result list. All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.
