Team Hoyt Sweeps World Cup Stage Three Compound Finals
ANTALYA, TURKEY The competition was fierce against Hoyt’s Pro Shooters at the recent World Cup Stage Three finals, as they battled an army of more than 300 archers representing 48 countries. But in the end, Team Hoyt triumphed over the field and owned the podiums in both the men’s and women’s compound divisions, claiming the gold, silver and bronze medals in an unbelievable six-for-six sweep.
The men’s compound division saw Hoyt shooters Sebastien Brasseur (FRA) and Braden Gellenthien (USA) contend for the top spot. Brasseur outlasted Gellenthien with a narrow 116-115 victory to grab the gold. And Thomas Hasenfuss (GER) edged out Hoyt’s Roberval Dos Santos (BRA) in the bronze medal match, as he and his Hoyt came through in the clutch and shot a 10 with his final arrow to seal the 115-113 win.
The women’s compound division was equally exciting, as Hoyt’s Anna Kazantseva (RUS) held on to defeat fellow Hoyt shooter Jahna Davis (USA) 112-108 in the gold medal match, earning a spot in the World Cup Finals. In the women’s bronze medal match, Hoyt’s Gladys Willems (BEL) once again proved why she holds the current FITA World Record of 1411, defeating Anastasia Anastasio (ITA) with a sold 112-102 victory.
Hoyt congratulates its shooters on standing their ground and proving to the world the tournament-tested accuracy of Hoyt’s bows, and it wishes them well at World Cup Stage Four, to be held July 31 - August 5 in Dover, Great Britain.
NORWAY Team Hoyt compound shooter Morten Boe narrowly missed a FITA world record with a solid 1412 at the recent Akkerhaugen Star Tournament in Norway. The Norwegian’s score fell a mere two points shy of the current world record of 1414 set by Hoyt’s Roger Hoyle in 2001. Boe’s 70-meter score of 356 ties the current world record held by Hoyt’s Dave Cousins.
Hoyt would like to congratulate Boe on his stellar shooting.
