STAY UP TO DATE
MEDELLIN, Colombia – The U.S. men’s compound team of Braden Gellenthien, James Lutz and Tate Morgan took bronze in the final stage of the 2022 Archery World Cup. The afternoon recurve qualifications featured a standout performance by Jack Williams.
This stage marked the first event that Gellenthien, Lutz and Morgan shot together as a team. In the quarterfinals, the compound men’s trio faced Mexico in a tight match-up and walked away winning 237-234. The team then lined up against France where a couple of wayward arrows left the team a few points shy of the gold medal match. The U.S. men were able to recover from the prior match to post a 236 over Korea’s 234 to take the bronze medal.
The compound women’s team of Linda Ochoa-Anderson, Makenna Proctor and Isabella Otter advanced to the quarterfinals before taking a 3-point loss to Mexico.
The afternoon sun shined bright on Williams who seeded third with a 679 in the recurve qualification round.
"A third-place finish is good. I was hoping for a 680 but the weather today was a little off on the second half," he said. "The first half was really good and then something happened in the second half. You can see it all the way across, some sort of wind. 679 being third is pretty low for a world cup but everybody on the field was having a problem on the second half."
Williams is joined by Brady Ellison and Matthew Requa ranked second in the recurve men’s team competition.
On the women’s end of the field, Casey Kaufhold qualified twelfth with a 657 surrounded by tight competition. Alongside Kaufhold will be Catalina GNoriega and Jennifer Mucino-Fernandez shooting for the recurve women’s team event.
Teammates Kaufhold and Williams are ranked fourth for the mixed team event, which will be contested on Friday.
