Following the primary 1440 Round competition the archers were ranked according to their scores in preparation for the elimination rounds. Archers shot at 70m, 50m, 40m, and 30m, with beginners shooting at 15m. Eliminations are not normally part of a 1440 Round competition, but were included as a “fun event”. It also served as practice for the African Archery Championships & African Continental Qualifying Tournament for the 2016 Olympic Games which will be held from January 28 – 31, 2016 at the DTS Sport Club in Windhoek.

The Recurve Men eliminations at 70m was won by Paul Grobler.

The 50m eliminations was a mixed (male/female) event comprising multiple age groups. Francois Marais captured first place against Elisabeth Taljaard who took second. Louw Nel defeated Donavan Langenhoven in a single arrow shoot-out to finish in third place. 

The 40m eliminations was won by Gideon Brink in the Gold medal match against Adriaan Grobler. Grobler took second place with Quinn Reddig capturing third place. 

In the 30m eliminations, Dirkie de Bod shot best to capture first place with SW Kuhn in second and Werner Grobler in third. 

For all our beginners this was their 1st competition and they shot eliminations at 15m in a mixed compound/recurve competition. Recurve archer Barnie Henning from Tsumeb Archery Club won the eliminations after shooting against CJ Oosthuizen who placed second. Wendy Swart finished in third place. 

SKW Archery Club would like to thank all the archers who participated from across the country as well as the support staff who made this event possible.
