ULSAN, KOREA – Team Hoyt continued its domination on the world stage at the recent 45th World Archery Championships. One thousand athletes from 80 countries converged on the brand new, state-of-the-art archery park in Ulsan, Korea, for this week-long battle, and in the end, Team Hoyt emerged victorious.
In the Men’s Compound Division, Team Hoyt’s Reo Wilde qualified #1 with a 1401 and maintained his dominance throughout the elimination rounds. Wilde clinched the gold with a near-perfect 119/120 in the semi-finals and a 118/120 in the gold medal match. Steve Clifton joined Wilde on the podium with a third place finish for Team Hoyt, and Jose Duo finished fourth. In Women’s Compound action, Hoyt’s Laura Longo won the bronze medal.
Hoyt shooters dominated the Team Rounds as well, with Dave Cousins, Braden Gellenthien and Reo Wilde winning the gold medal in the Men’s Compound Team Round, and Erika Anschutz, Diane Watson and Kendal Nicely winning the bronze in the Women’s Compound Team Round. The men’s victory proved just how effective Hoyt is at building world class bows for all shooting styles, as Cousins, Gellenthien and Wilde shoot the AlphaMax 35, Vantage Elite and Ultra Elite, respectively. Three distinct shooting styles. Three different Hoyt bows ... all world champions at the largest and most coveted outdoor world championship.
Hoyt would like to congratulate all of its shooters on an outstanding showing at the 45th World Archery Championships.
