A golden final day in Dubai beckons for the USA with Para Pan Am champs front and center

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Wendy Gardner and KJ Polish will seek to repeat their success at last year’s Para Pan American Games when they go for gold in the compound mixed team event on Thursday, the final day of the 8th Fazza Para Archery World Ranking Tournament.

The USA pairing faces Turkey, having overcome Chinese Taipei, Brazil and Korea en route to the gold medal match.

Polish will look to bag a second medal a little later Thursday when he tackles Jonathon Milne of Australia in the bronze medal match of the compound men open.

The focus on Wednesday was on the quest to secure more quota slots for the 2024 Paralympic Games in Paris. Jason Tabansky (W1 men, pictured) and Teresa Wallace (compound women open) went closest, falling at the semifinal stage. Tabansky went on to claim bronze, with Wallace finishing fourth.

Live scores and results can be found HERE, while Thursday's medal matches will be live-streamed via World Archery's platform, archery+.

The USA has five quota slots for the Paralympic Games, which take place from August 28-September 8. They have the maximum two slots in both the recurve men open and compound men open, as well as one slot in the W1 women.

The next step is for US athletes to compete for those slots during a series of trials qualification events.

The 2024 Paralympic Trials Qualification and Trials events will be comprised of three stages:
