STAY UP TO DATE
YANKTON, South Dakota - To say that Team USA is having an incredible week at the World Archery Youth Championships would be an understatement. The team is, in fact, shooting for no less than 13 medals in this weekend's finals - following the two mixed team bronze medals they've already won, and two world records smashed by compound women's teams.
Following individual and team eliminations during which archers faced driving rain and strong winds, the American archers have punched their tickets to six team gold medal matches, two mixed team gold medal finals, three individual gold medal matches, and two individual bronze medal matches. Fans can watch both days of this weekend's finals live, with compound finals airing Saturday and recurves on Sunday on World Archery's Archery TV.
Saturday's compound finals highlights include three gold medal matches for cadets in the morning: women's team, men's team, and mixed team. Dahlia Crook will also compete for the individual compound cadet women's bronze medal. In the afternoon, juniors will take to the field. David Houser will shoot for the compound junior men's gold medal; the compound junior mixed team will compete for gold; and both compound teams will also shoot for World Championship titles.
On Sunday, Team USA's recurve squad will face off for gold medals of their own. The recurve cadet men's team will shoot for gold versus Korea in the morning, joined by Eliana Claps, who will compete for recurve cadet women's bronze. In the afternoon, look for the recurve junior men's team to shoot for gold, while individual archers Mackenzie Brown and Collin Klimitchek will shoot for World Championship titles of their own.
In addition to live video coverage, World Archery will also offer live scoring, photos and updates throughout the event. Check out their Yankton 2015 page, and cheer for Team USA as they compete for 13 medals this weekend!
