“I’ve been shooting Hoyt throughout my comeback, posting my highest scores ever, and having shot the new Formula series, I can see that there’s simply no better choice. For me, it’s Hoyt all the way to 2012.”
With that in mind, top-ranked UK archer Simon Terry has signed a three-year equipment support agreement with Hoyt, covering the period between now and the next Olympic Games in London, and beyond.
GBR’s “Silver Fox” has had an unprecedented comeback from his 1992 retirement, returning to archery and picking up a Hoyt in 2006 where he blazed to the forefront of European and World archery. Besides setting a new British and European record, Simon has medaled in the 07 World Championship, multiple World Cup events, and the Grand Final in Copenhagen this past year.
Hoyt is proud to support great athletes like Simon Terry. Hoyt Senior Recurve Engineer George Tekmitchov said "With the upcoming Olympic Games in London, there's more media focus and pressure on GBR's top shooters than ever before. Simon's confidence in Hoyt means he can simply work on what he does best- shooting at a tremendous level".
Tekmitchov added: ”Simon is a great pleasure to work with. Besides having the experience and maturity of a veteran competitor, Simon’s constantly giving us feedback and his viewpoint on our innovations and product quality. It’s a great partnership. All of us at Team Hoyt are extremely proud to be associated with Simon.”
Simon joins other top shooters such as 2008 Olympic Champion Viktor Ruban, 2004 Olympic Champion Marco Galiazzo, 2007 World Champion and Olympic medalist Natalia Valeeva, and 2008 Olympic Champion Viktor Ruban, who have again this year chosen Hoyt as their exclusive choice of recurve bow.
In addition, Hoyt welcomes top American recurve shooter and past compound junior World Champion Brady Ellison to the Hoyt family for 2010-12 as well.
