OTTAWA (Archery Canada) – The 2019 Canadian Outdoor 3D Archery Championships concluded on Monday in Prince Albert, Sask., with the crowning of 32 titlists and the announcement of the national team for the upcoming World Championships in Lac La Biche, Alta. (Sept. 2-8).

Archery Canada Website: www.archerycanada.ca/en
Canadian Championship Website: Prince Albert 2019
Complete Results: Results

“The event was well organized from start to finish,” said Aaron Bull, Vice President 3D Programs at Archery Canada. “The Timberland Bowbenders did a superior job of setting up 80 targets that truly tested even the most experienced archers over the championships. Thank you to the Bowbenders and all of the volunteers.”

The squad that will represent Canada at 3D Worlds early next month was selected based on combined results from the 2018 and 2019 Nationals.

The red and white contingent heading to Lac La Biche includes:

Women’s Compound: Monica Higgins (Lethbridge, Alta.), Jessica Beaumont (Neuville, Que.), Catherine Faulkner (Calgary); alternate Ashley Casperson (Washago, Ont.).

Men’s Compound: Cory Smandych (Calgary), Chase Martin (Grande Prairie, Alta.), Cameron Herbert (Lacombe, Alta.).

Women’s Instinctive Bow: Trudy Dryden (The Glades, N.B.), Caroline Laue (Edmonton), Katie Britton (Pinantan Lake, B.C.).

Men’s Instinctive Bow: Fred Streleoff (Williams Lake, B.C.), Marc Britton (Pinantan Lake, B.C.), Dan Mobbs (150 Mile House, B.C.); alternate Ray Neumeyer (Nobleford, Alta.).

Women’s Longbow: Miranda Sparkes (Logan Lake, B.C.), Jessica Mobbs (150 Mile House, B.C.), Cornelia Squirra (Roblin, Man.).

Men’s Longbow: Monty Van Der Westhuizen (Medicine Hat, Alta.), Brock Paton (Oosoyoos, B.C.), Kevin Baldwin (Grassland, Alta.).

Men’s Barebow: Alan Hindle (Perth-Andover, N.B.), Tyler Moore (Moose Jaw, Sask.), Duane Filipuzzi (Lethbridge, Alta.).

“The Canadian national team we selected should be very competitive with the worlds’ best and to medal at these championships here on home soil is our goal,” said Bull. “We will see on this team some athletes who bring previous experience at the world championship level as well as some new talent who will have their first experience at Worlds this year.”

Of the group, Faulkner, Dryden, Sparkes, Herbert and Marc Britton captured gold in their respective categories over the long weekend in Prince Albert.

Dryden was one of six archers who successfully defended their Canadian outdoor 3D titles from 2018, along with fellow female competitors Sandie Plashka (Compound Master 60), Angela Hay (Compound Fixed Pins) and Robin Squirra (Traditional Pre-Cub), as well as Clay Laronde (Compound Junior) and Ty Thurow (Compound Cadet) in men’s action.

Joelle Thurow also reached the top of the podium for the second straight year, prevailing in Women’s Compound Cub after winning the Pre-Cub tournament last summer in Truro, N.S.

For their part, seven athletes claimed their second 3D national title of 2019 this weekend, adding to their triumphs at the Canadian Indoor Championships held in late April in Brandon, Man. The list includesLacey Moore on the women’s side (outdoor: Hunter / indoor: Compound Fixed Pins) and male counterparts Cohen Quick (Compound Pre-Cub), Dan David (Compound Master 60), Kristofer Skelly (Compound Fixed Pins), Steve Keys (outdoor: Known 50 / indoor: Compound Master), James Frigon (Hunter) and Bevan Bailey (Traditional Master).

Article from: https://worldarchery.org/news/174136/canadas-austin-taylor-makes-gold-medal-match-world-youth-championships

22 August 2019
Madrid, Spain
The country has had two previous winners at the event: one team, one individual.

Austin Taylor, 19, will shoot for Canada’s first title at the World Archery Youth Championships since Doris Jones won compound junior women’s gold in Merida in 2006.

Taylor seeded sixth in Madrid.

He showed nerves of steel in his first match after both he and Jagdeep Singh of Colombia shot 145 points for the 15-arrow 50-metre match. A shoot-off was needed and the Canadian archer put his arrow into the X.

Austin then beat Turkey’s Emircan Haney, German archer Paolo Kunsch and Rodrigo Olvera of Mexico with scores of 145, 146 and 146 points.

It sets up a gold medal match against Anders Faugstad on Saturday.

“I am absolutely pumped, that’s what I was looking for over the last few years. I’m definitely excited,” said Taylor.

“The competition level is so high that you can’t expect to get into the gold medal match but I definitely knew that if I stuck to the game plan, I had chances to do that.”

The compound bow has brought the majority of previous successes for Canadian archery.

Jones won an individual gold at the youth championships in 2006 and a Canadian junior men’s team was world champion eight years ago in Legnica in 2011.

Christopher Perkins was a junior when he became senior world champion that same year. Dietmar Trillus won the title in 2007.

The 2019 World Archery Youth Championships takes place on 19-25 August in Madrid, Spain.


Team Manitoba Archers advance to Semi Final & Final Events at 2019 Youth Worlds

MADRID — Canada’s Austin Taylor, of Winnipeg, will compete Saturday in the gold medal final at the World Archery Youth Championship.

Winning all of his elimination rounds — first against Singh Mejia Jagdeep Teji of Colombia, then Emircan Haney of Turkey — Taylor found himself against Paolo Kunsch of Germany in the quarterfinals, which Taylor won, putting him into the semifinals against Olvera Mendez Rodrigo of Mexico. Taylor won again, guaranteeing a podium finish and earning a berth in the gold medal final against Anders Faugstad of Norway.

The gold medal match goes Saturday at 19:33 Madrid time, or 12:33 Central Daylight Time. In addition to being a national team member, Taylor is a member of Archery Manitoba’s provincial team.

The gold medal match can be streamed live at: https://youtu.be/REm-0hXaZfc

Also earning a shot at a medal, Canada’s cadet men team — Robbie Comberbach, Brady Klassen and Kyle Cherniak, all from Winnipeg — will shoot in Friday’s semifinal, with a berth in the gold medal match or a chance to shoot for bronze, on the line. They face Denmark, which Thursday set a world record for team match play with a score of 236.

Canada’s 10th ranked cadet mixed team, made up of Klassen and Kristen Arsenault of Prince Edward Island advanced to the quarter finals Thursday with a decisive win over 7th ranked Estonia with a score of 146 – 136. Mixed team quarter finals continue Friday against 2nd ranked Mexico.

Winnipeg’s Austin Taylor leads the Canadians at World Archery Youth Championship

MADRID — Finishing qualifications in sixth place with a score of 698 out of 720, Winnipeg archer Austin Taylor, shooting in the compound junior male category, is the top Canadian at the World Archery Youth Championships in the Spanish capital. Archery Manitoba congratulates all the Canadian archers in Madrid, including the six from Manitoba.

Winnipeg archers Brady Klassen, 10th place with a score of 691, Robbie Comberbach in 14th place with a score of 687 and Kyle Cherniak in 30th place with a score of 678, turned in a strong performance in the compound cadet male category. The three represented Canada’s entire cadet compound male team.

Bryanne Lameg, also of Winnipeg, had a strong 15th place showing in the junior female compound category.

Winnipeg’s Chyler Sanders, in her first world championship, was excited about her 36th place (out of 47), with a score of 643.

The qualification rounds wrapped up Tuesday, with archers progressing to elimination rounds beginning Wednesday, with medal rounds concluding on Saturday.
