Team USA Archery Takes Off for World Archery 3D Championships in Italy

TERNI, Italy -- The World Archery 3D Championships kicks off Sunday, September 4 in Terni, Italy. Team USA Archery is fielding a full lineup of two dozen archers competing in four disciplines - longbow, traditional, barebow, and compound.

More than 300 archers from 28 countries will be competing. The U.S. roster includes reigning barebow bronze medalist Dewayne Martin, who also won team gold in 2017, Kenneth Rienas, the reigning instinctive silver medalist, and 2019 women’s team bronze medalists Heather Gore-Smith and Fawn Girard, who was also the 2019 world field silver medalist.

The Championship will take place over seven days starting with two days of qualification rounds followed by the mixed team event, pool matches, and the finals.

The competition starts at the Meadows of Stroncone situated outside Terni. The natural terrain creates a beautiful and diverse backdrop for the competition. The individual finals move to Carsulae, home to ancient Roman ruins, which haven’t been fully excavated, with the remains of a basilica, twin temples, and an amphitheater. Targets will be placed around the site providing a unique, historical backdrop.

Gore-Smith will be sharing daily updates from the competition on USA Archery’s Facebook and Instagram. Results from the event will be available here.
