Archery Canada is excited to see Canadian national team archer, Crispin Duenas invited to participate in the second installment of the World Archery Lockdown Knockout remote tournament.
Archery, along with most other sports, saw the cancellation of competition and closure of most training facilities as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. World Archery, seeking a way to engage the community, introduced this first ever international remote archery tournament in May with a compound competition. It was a huge success that generated more than 4.5 million impressions on social media and was featured on many national television news networks
around the world.
After the success of the compound target archery Lockdown Knockdown, World Archery has announced it will host a recurve iteration of the remote tournament. Eight athletes of mixed genders have been selected to compete in the tournament, each archery shooting a 60-arrow, 18-metre qualification round from June 5th through 8th. Among the archers selected are Canadian Crispin Duenas, a three-time Olympian and the reigning Pan American Games Champion, as well as Brady Ellison of the USA, and Aida Roman of Mexico. Archers will be seeded and placed in a bracket dependent on gender, with the finals being a competition between the best male and female athlete.
After the Qualification round, the Quarter finals will be streamed live by World Archery from June 13th-16th, the Semifinals from June 18th-19th and the Finals on June 21st. The livestreams are set to start at 11h00 EST and the winner will be able to advance to the next round.
