Canadian Archers set to compete in season opener of the Hyundai Archery World Cup
The beginning of the 15th season of the Hyundai Archery World Cup gets underway this week in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Canada will be represented in Guatemala by four Men’s recurve archers: Crispin Duenas (Scarborough, On), Conner Sorley (Saskatoon, Sk), Eric Peters (Ottawa, On), and Brian Maxwell (Burnaby, BC) along with National Coach Shawn Riggs and High Performance Director Alan Brahmst. This event in Guatemala is the first of three consecutive months of Hyundai Archery World Cup stages, with the second to take place in late May in Lausanne, SUI and then Paris, FRA in June.
The four athletes are heading to Guatemala fresh off a series of domestic training camps that were held under an Ontario government exemption to enable ongoing team training in preparation for the Tokyo Olympic Games and the continuing qualification process. The Canadian Men’s Recurve program has already earned one (1) Olympic quota spot and are on the hunt to qualify a full team, an objective they hope to meet in Paris.
