“Results today were mixed on the scoreboard,” says Shawn Riggs, National Recurve Coach. “There were a number of personal achievements that were of note and would not be discernible from the results. However, from a program standpoint, there is still ample work to do as we chart a new course in preparation for Paris 2024 and LA 2028.”
