Padua, Italy - Multiple world indoor and outdoor champion Natalia Valeeva (ITA) posted the latest big victory for Hoyt's Formula System with total domination of the Italian Indoor Nationals. Posting a 583 qualifying round with her Formula RX/F3, the highest score posted, Team Hoyt's Valeeva defeated all comers in the elimination rounds to take the gold medal - also posting the highest 12-arrow pass of any competitor in one of Europe's toughest competitions with a 118/120 in the semifinals.
Taking second was Hoyt's Pia Carmen Lionetti (ITA), with her Formula RX/F4.
Hoyt's Marco Galiazzo (ITA) posted the highest qualifying score (by a whopping five points) of 590 and ended the finals taking the silver medal.
The Italian results continue the ongoing storm of victories achieved with the Formula System. With the season just a month old, Formula shooters have taken tens of victories, set a national record, and tied a world record.
With results like that, it's no wonder Formula is the most successful new bow of 2010 - bar none!
