In the Recurve Men 1/16, Canada’s Crispin Duenas and Brandon Xuereb faced off against one another with Crispin taking the win 6-2. Eric Peters faced #27 Marco Lopez and after a hard-fought battle emerged victorious with a perfect x10 in the one arrow shoot off! In the 1/8 round unfortunately both Eric and Crispin lost their matches to Cuba and Mexico respectively. The recurve women had a great morning. Rookie Amelia Gagne had a good first match but Machado of Brazil proved just too strong. Stephanie Barrett beat Mendoza of Ecuador in a thrilling one arrow shoot off (10-8).
