Another golden opportunity beckons for Sullivan as USA reaches mixed team final

YECHEON, Korea - Sawyer Sullivan is set for a busy day on Saturday in the compound division of the Hyundai Archery World Cup Stage 2, as he will feature in at least two gold medal matches.

The 20-year-old Texas A&M archer will begin with the gold medal match against Turkey in compound men team, alongside James Lutz and Kris Schaff. That will be followed by the compound mixed team, with Sullivan and Olivia Dean tackling India for gold.

The afternoon session will see Sullivan meet Mike Schloesser in the semifinals of the compound men event. Lutz is involved in the other semifinal, where he tackles Prathamesh Bhalchandra Fuge (IND).

Mixed team matches took place on Friday. The US pair of Dean and Sullivan began with victory over Australia before successive scores of 158 pushed them past France and then Colombia.

A week ago, Sullivan was working his way through the field at the USA Archery Collegiate Target Nationals, which he would go on to win. He has clearly carried that form onto the international stage in Korea. Dean is also having a fine outdoor season, having enjoyed back-to-back wins at the opening two USAT events of the year, the AAE Arizona Cup and Easton Foundations Gator Cup.

The recurve mixed team of Brady Ellison and Casey Kaufhold got past Indonesia in their first match, winning 6-2, only to fall to top seeds Korea in the 1/8 round 5-3.

Jack Williams reached the 1/8 round in the recurve men, after wins over Senna Roos (NED) 6-0 and Je Deok Kim (KOR) 6-4, before losing to fourth seed Wooseok Lee (KOR), who is through to the semifinals.

On the women’s side, both Kaufhold and Jennifer Mucino-Fernandez won through their first matches. They then went out at the 1/16 round, with Kaufhold losing in a shootoff.

This is the second of three World Cup stages, reduced from the usual four due to this being an Olympic year. The Final Qualifying Tournament for the Olympic Games will take place in Turkey immediately prior to World Cup Stage 4.

The remaining World Cup schedule looks like this:

Stage 3

June 18-23

Antalya, Turkey


October 19-20

Tlaxcala, Mexico
