As the first player ever Ouschan took gold in all available events; 8-ball, 9-ball, 10-ball and straight pool. Actually she won all but one match in the entire competition, a 7-3 loss to Line Kjørsvik (Norway) in 9-ball.
Ouschan successfully defended her golds in 8-ball and 9-ball from 2009. In 8-ball she also won in 2007 and 2008.
German legend Ralf Souquet also had a great event, scoring gold in both 9-ball and 10-ball.
Jouni Tahti from Finland copied that achievement in the wheelchair division. He took gold in 9-ball for the second year running.
Ouschan now tops the all-time medal standings with 23 golds. Souquet sits in second with 22 wins. Tahti is sixth in the same list with 10 victories.
This was the first time 10-ball was included in the programme.
