Team USA Finishes Challenging Qualification at World Archery 3D Championships

TERNI, Italy - After two long challenging days of qualification, Shiloh Butts leads the longbow men’s division with a 757. Also qualifying in the top 10 of the division was Kenneth Jordan II with a score of 705.

For our barebow division, Fawn Girard qualified 2nd in the barebow women with a 769. On the men’s side, Daniel Colloms qualified 4th with an 865, followed by Dewayne Martin, who qualified 6th with an 860 after the 96 arrows.

In the compound division, Gracelyn Chambers qualified 8th with a 912 over the past two days of competition. Teammate Heather Gore-Smith also finished in the top 10.

Kenneth Rienas finished 10th in the instinctive men’s division with a 787.

This year World Archery 3D has two team competitions. First, a mixed team composed of the top male and top female qualifiers from each division. Second, are the male and female teams. Each team is comprised of the top qualifying compound, longbow, and one either instinctive or barebow athlete on each team. For the mixed teams, Girard and Colloms qualified 2nd and will be shooting in a semifinal match on Wednesday morning on the field in Stroncone, Italy. Both USA’s men’s and women’s teams qualified for the team competition. On the men’s side, Landyn Cox, Colloms, and Butts are seeded 4th along with the women’s team consisting of Chambers, Girard, and Joella Bates. The men’s and women’s team competition takes place Friday on the Stroncone field.

Thursday, individual elimination matches will start. Matches are contested in a “shoot up” format from pools created from qualification seeds. The top 2 qualifiers for each division are pre-seeded into the semifinals, so Butts and Girard are already guaranteed medal match appearances. Saturday, the semifinals and medal matches will take place at the finals venue, Carsulae – Archeological Park.
