Interesting week of Namibian Archery Worldwide

INTERESTING WEEK OF NAMIBIA ARCHERY WORLDWIDE 1
In the Quarter finals Xander lost against Bangladesh (who went on and clinched gold overall) with a single arrow shoot out in the 10 with a difference of 2-5mm. He finished 6
th overall.

Further we had a team of 7 archers participating in Zimbabwe where the Z.A.A. held their 42nd Nationals and first since 2001. With the high standard of our Namibian archers this was a very good learning curve for the Zimbabwe archers.

In the 1440 round Namibia won all 5 categories were our archers participated.

In the 720 and elimination round Namibia had a clean sweep. Ilana Malan who shoot the highest elimination score of 142 out of possible 150 was defeated by Elisabeth Taljaard in the compound 50m category. JB Oosthuysen won the bronze medal.

On 40 m our Recurve archer Quinn Reddig won with a score of 115 against the Zimbabwean compound archer Nicole who scored 91.

Our youngest archer Dirk de Bod shot on 30m and won with an elimination score of 136 against Shania with a score of 100.

The Zimbabwe Archery Association was very pleased that the Namibian archers did the trip to help them get their archery up to World Archery standard and learn from our more experienced archers.

From the 2nd -3rd of October the top 16 Namibian NASP Archers from 6 Namibian Schools will participate at the African All Star competition in Rustenburg where South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe will be participating. The team will be leaving on the 30th of September and will be back in the country on the 4th of October. We wish good luck to the 16 Archers.
