Ouschan has record-breaking performance at the 2010 European Pool Championships

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.
