The Indoor Archery World Series is nearing its grand finale at The Vegas Shoot after the fifth and penultimate tournament finished in Nimes on January 19, 2020.
Braden Gellenthien, Brady Ellison and Lisell Jaatma took individual titles.
The fourth winner was defending Indoor Archery World Series Champion Sim Yeji of Korean professional women’s team Hyundai Mobis.
“I was winner last year at the Finals and when I get back to Korea, I’m going to train hard to win it again,” she said.
The winners of Nimes received 1000 points towards the series’ elite rankings. It means, as long as they shoot in Vegas, all four are virtual locks to qualify for this year’s Finals.
It is the results of the first two days of The Vegas Shoot that are counted as the last stage of the Series.
The top 16 archers in the elite ranking who have competed in at least three tournaments during the season are then invited to compete in the Indoor Archery World Series Finals, which will be held on Saturday, February 8.
The title matches will take place at 8pm in the championship arena and spectator access is free.
World number one and back-to-back Nimes winner Braden Gellenthien said he was looking forward to the challenge of the last and largest tournament on the circuit.
“Vegas is my favorite tournament of the year. It’s the one that eludes me but I’m always after it,” he said. “This is a great springboard.”
The Vegas Shoot 2020 will take place on February 7-9 in the South Point Hotel and Casino.
