The fourth stage of the Indoor Archery World Series took place in Nimes, France on January 18-20, with nearly 1,200 archers participating.
Held at the Parc des Expositions, the tournament included compound and recurve competitions for junior, senior and master categories and for both men and women.
The USA’s Braden Gellenthien and Germany’s Janine Meissner took the compound senior titles, while Korean archers Kang Chae Young and Lee Seungyun topped the recurve events.
The European stage was the last of the Indoor Archery World Series before it moves to America and The Vegas Shoot, which will host the last leg over its first two days and the grand finale in the evening of February 9, 2019.
After points accrued over those first two days are added to the elite ranking, the top 16 athletes are automatically invited to compete in the Indoor Archery World Series Final.
The tournament in Nimes historically marks two weeks to go until The Vegas Shoot – and a good indicator of how many people will register for the trip to Sin City.
At the end of the weekend’s competition in France, nearly 3,300 archers were entered for The Vegas Shoot 2019; that’s 200 more than in 2018.
There’s still time to get your registration complete. Visit www.thevegasshoot.com for more information and we look forward to seeing you all at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in less than two weeks’ time.
