Van Wyk dominates SKW Club Shoot

VAN WYK DOMINATES SWK CLUB SHOOT
Ben van Wyk (Tsumeb Archery Club) showed that he is a force to be reckoned with, clinching first place over one of Namibia’s top archers, Louw Nel (SKW). Donavan Langenhoven, a newcomer to the archery circuit, showed good form as he led the first round by a single point. However, the more experienced Van Wyk and Nel showed why they are among Namibia’s top archers clinching 1
st and 2nd place respectively.

Xander Reddig (Tsumeb Archery Club) dominated the Recurve division, shooting a personal best score of 662/720 and taking 1st place over Adrian Grobler (SKW). Reddig will be competing in the Commonwealth Games in September hosted by Samoa. 

The shoot also hosted a beginner class in Recurve and Compound, showing a lot of potential amongst the youngsters.

Namibia will also be sending a team to the Zimbabwean Nationals on 12-13 September 2015, all in preparation for the FAA Olympic Qualifier and Continental Championship that will be hosted by the Archery Association Namibia in Windhoek at the end of January 2016.
