Canada captured the compound mixed team bronze medal at FITA World Cup in Turkey in June. After finishing 15th in the qualifying round the team of Dietmar Trillus of Ontario and Ashley Wallace of Alberta had an uphill battle, first facing the second ranked Korean team. After defeating Korea 151-148, they faced seventh ranked Mexico narrowly winning 151-150 to face third ranked India.
After losing 154-147, Canada faced Amir KAZEMPOOR and Mino ABEDI of Iran who were ranked fourth after the qualifiers. With winds causing arrows to drift to the left, Iran posted two 7s in the first end, allowing Canada to take an early lead, 36-33 and to eventually go on to capture the bronze with a score of 150-141
Sergio PAGNI and Marcella TONIOLI of eighth ranked Italy captured the Gold medal defeating India in the Gold Medal match.
Thanks for the report. Do you also shoot compound in addition to recurve?
I started on a small beginner compound bow called the “l’il Brave” however I am now dedicated to Olympic recurve.
