HALIFAX, Nova Scotia – Earlier this month at the 2022 Youth & Masters Pan American Championships, USA archers brought home 32 podium finishes and broke numerous event records and a world record during the competition.

USA Archery is proud to congratulate these athletes on achieving record-breaking scores and pushing the boundaries of what our athletes can accomplish in this sport, especially on the world stage.

World Record:

  • Susan Bock and Mark Williams: Recurve 50+ mixed team 60-meter round (1181/1440 points)

Bock and Williams’ record is an event record, continental record and world record, achieved while shooting in incredibly windy conditions. Bock commented: “I knew for me that I had never shot in conditions anything like that before. I think we all knew it would be a challenge and our averages were going to take a hit. So for me, I picked a point to aim at and tried to make strong shots.”

Bock said that while the wind was fierce for the women’s line, it was even stronger during the men’s line, so although she and Williams were able to set a record, she looks forward to the chance to shoot this round again and throw down more serious scores.

“I tried to keep my focus on being at my first international tournament and representing the 50+ USA women. I am so very proud to have had this opportunity and can’t wait to do it again,” added Bock.
