The Swiss watch maker Longines has inaugurated a new prize for the most accurate shooter in World Archery, and the front runner after the first stage of the Archery World Cup is Hoyt's Brady Ellison (USA). The prize, which includes 5000 Swiss Francs (about $5,000.00) and a special Longines watch, is for the recurve shooter with the highest cumulative ten count in the World Cup stages.
Brady used his Formula RX/F3 to score an amazing 64 tens in the qualification and matches of the World Cup stage 1 held in Porec Croatia this past week, on his way to take the Gold Medal. Brady was also awarded a Longines Champion's watch for his incredible achievement.
Competition for the prestigious Longines prize will take place all season, with the next stages at Antalya, Turkey, Ogden, USA, and Shanghai, China before culminating with the World Cup Grand Final in Edinburgh, Scotland at the end of the season.
