Why should I do it?
Crystal Gauvin, who won silver at the Final two years in a row shared: "Indoor World Cups are a great way for archers to gain experience on the International stage. I think they make a great first step for anyone looking to qualify for outdoor World Cups because they will get the opportunity to learn how to handle the travel and jet lag, all while shooting against some of the best in the world." 2012 Olympic Silver medalist Jake Kaminski agreed: "it's an excuse to go see parts of the rest of the world. It is also good for experience."
