Compound Wins Gold on Last Day of 2022 Pan Am and Para Pan Am Champs

Santiago, Chile – The last day of the 2022 Pan Am and Para Pan Am Championships started with a dramatic tie-breaker in the Compound Mixed Team bronze event and an upset in the men’s individual compound gold medal match resulting in USA winning gold.

What a day for compound events! It started with an energizing Compound Mixed Team finals event with USA Paige Pearce and James Lutz going head-to-head with El Salvador, resulting in a tiebreaker. Team USA shot an X and 10 for the tiebreaker, bringing home bronze. 

Next, Paige Pearce headed over to the gold medal match for Women’s Compound to win gold in a tight match with El Salvador’s Paola Corado, 146-142.

Continuing the compound winning streak was USA vs. Mexico in individual Compound Men’s. In a tough match against Mexico’s Miguel Becerra and favorite to win, Nick Kappers won gold, 149-148 and Sawyer Sullivan took bronze against Mexico’s Uriel Olvera, 148-143.

USA Casey Kaufhold and Matthew Requa won silver against Mexico for Recurve Mixed Team. 

The sole USA recurve athlete to make it to an individual recurve finals event, otherwise dominated by Mexico, was Casey Kaufhold who won bronze against Canada’s Eleanor Brug for Recurve Women.

What an amazing week for Team USA Archery! Both Pan Am and Para Pan Am teams earned full quota spots for the 2023 Pan Am and Para Pan Am Games, which will be an Olympic and Paralympic Qualifying Tournament for Paris 2024.
