In the Indoors, Ken Uprichard continued his form, showing what an Olympian can do, taking the Gold Medal in the Men’s 30-39 Recurve division. That makes three from three events so far – what can he do tomorrow in the WA field Round? The same goes for Elizabeth Ellery-Siaosi of New Zealand, an Oceania champ and former NZ representative, who is currently dominating the Women’s 40-49 compound division.
In the WA field round today, Natalie Dielen Pilloud of Switzerland took out the Women’s Recurve 50-59 division, beating Dawn Nelson-Furnell and local heroine Micky Gunn. Morten Schelander of Norway won the Men’s Combined Barebow 40-49 division, and Jason Meehan of Great Britain won the Men’s Combined Barebow 50-59 division.
In the IFAA field round, Evgenii Sergeev of Russia managed a second behind Ian Asidera of Australia in the Men’s Compound Freestyle Unlimited 30-39 division, and Gustav Bam of New Zealand continued his winning ways, taking out the Men’s Compound Freestyle Unlimited 40-49 division. Will he take the last gold medal tomorrow, or go away with only three gold’s and a silver? Wayne Sargent and Dean Sheerin of New Zealand were left to scrabble over the silver, and it was settled with a single arrow shootoff, with Sargent taking it out.
Wellington Longbow archer Darren Day showed just how close the competition was in the Men’s 50-59 Longbow division, taking the gold from Auckland archer Roger Chan by just a single point.
