Team Hoyt Dominates World Cup in Turkey
June 10, 2011 Antalya, Turkey
With the President of the International Olympic Committee and other top world sports dignitaries watching closely, and with millions of viewers on networks watching live around the world, Team Hoyt shooters OH, Jin-Hyuk (KOR) and Brady ELLISON (USA) put on a great show for the Gold Medal match in tough weather conditions on the beach in Antalya Turkey. After taking the first leg of the Archery World Cup earlier this season in Croatia, Brady and his famous pink Formula RX found themselves up against Korea’s top shooter- also armed with a Hoyt Formula.
At the end, it was Brady and his distinctive pink Formula RX/F3 defeating Korean Team star Oh and his Midori Green Formula RX/F4, 6-0 in straight sets- Brady’s second straight victory on the World Cup circuit.
Hoyt shooter Dmytro HRACHOV (UKR) completed the total Hoyt sweep of the Men’s recurve category, defeating his opponent from China with a decisive 6-2 victory in set play.
Not to be outdone, it was a total Gold sweep for Team Hoyt’s compound shooters as well. All four Women’s Compound finalists shoot Hoyt, including champion Parsamehr MAHTAB (IRI), Silver medal winner Ivana BUDEN (CRO) and Bronze winner (and reigning World Champion) Albina LOGINOVA (RUS), defeating Hoyt shooter Seyedah HALIMIANAVVAL (IRI) who finished 4th.
In men’s compound action, Team Hoyt’s Rodger WILLETT Jr (USA) took his second-straight World Cup victory, defeating Hoyt shooter Amir KAZEMPOOR (IRI) in the Gold Medal finals, and putting Rodger in the runaway lead for the Longines Precision Prize- the award for the most accurate shooter on the World Cup circuit as measured by 10-count.
