“The event was very well attended by archers from coast to coast,” said Aaron Bull, Vice President 3D Programs at Archery Canada. The weather was a big factor during the first two rounds with significant storms drenching the competitors. The third day, the weather cooperated with the sun shining for the final round and Grand Prix shoot off.”
Of the 32 archers who reached the top of the podium in Truro, five successfully defended their national outdoor titles from 2017, including Monica Higgins (Compound Unlimited), Jessica Beaumont (Junior Compound), Joelle Thurow (Pre-Cub Compound) and Robin Squirra (Pre-Cub Traditional) on the women’s side, as well as Fred Streleoff (Instinctive) in men’s competition.
In men’s action, Christian Frenette (Master 50 Traditional) and Ty Thurow (Cadet Compound) also claimed gold for the second straight year, with their latest triumphs coming in different categories than in 2017. They had prevailed in Barebow and Cub Compound, respectively, last summer in Amos, Que.
For his part, Streleoff was one of four archers to capture a second 3D national title in 2018, adding to his win at the Canadian Indoor Championships held in late April in Sundre, Alta. The other athletes to accomplish the feat were Monty Vander Westhuizen (Men’s Longbow) and Heather Leduc (Women’s Barebow), as well as Angela Hay, who prevailed in the Women’s Compound Fixed Pin category after winning the Hunter competition at the indoor event.
