Shiloh Butts Brings Home Bronze for Team USA at the 2022 World Archery 3D Championships

TERNI, Italy – Today marked the final day of the 2022 Rinehart World Archery 3D Championships. This morning everyone set out to the outskirts of Terni to Carsulae – Archeological Park. First up were semifinal matches in all divisions. USA had 4 individuals heading into the rounds to see who would be competing for gold or bronze in the final medal matches.

Longbow men's Shiloh Butts, went head-to-head with Italy's Giulano Faletti losing the match 36-31. He then went on to face Austria's Alfred Muhlburger in the bronze medal match. It was a tough match as Butts found himself 3 points behind after the first target. He then made an incredible shot on target 2 scoring a 10 to close the gap to only 1 point. On the third target, Butts again was able to make a strong shot to take the lead. On the final target, at close to the maximum distance for the longbow division, Butts found himself in a position to win the match. All he had to do was shoot a 5 and he did to win the bronze medal 28-26!

Kenneth Rienas, Fawn Girard, and Daniel Colloms all shot great matches, but fell short of the win ending up in 4th, just off of the podium.
