young at heart

Hello and welcome to Bow International 132. This edition pulls together a few strands from the closing of the indoor season and the beginning of the outdoor season. Am very pleased in this issue to include an interview with Casey Kaufhold, just 15 years old and the very definition of a rising star in our world. Her short but highly-driven career so far holds pretty much boundless promise for the future, in a world where many junior archers, even ones with immense talent, struggle to make the jump to a senior career. On the international scene, in a World Championship year, the temperature is rising. The Worlds, being held this year in Den Bosch in the Netherlands, contain a key competition for recurve archers; the primary team qualification for the Olympics.…

indian archery issues continue

A long-running issue over administration in Indian archery continues, as the sport continues to move deeper into the Olympic cycle. World Archery officially recognised the newly-elected archery AAI (Archery Association of India) as a legitimate authority to select the teams for the upcoming international competitions. However, the IOA (Indian Olympic Association) still does not recognise the current AAI. World Archery rejected the IOA's proposal to form a temporary ad-hoc body. Secretary general Tom Dielen said the decision was made in "the best interest of the athletes", with regards to the Olympic selection tournament at the upcoming World Championships. However the recognition is conditional on certain amendments to the constitution and processes of the AAI. The decision is the latest in a long-running and complex issue over administration of the sport in the country.…

EUROPEAN INDOOR CHAMPS WRAPS IN SAMSUN Gizem Elmaagacli of Turkey, Italy’s Max Mandia, Russia’s Sayana Tsyrempilova and Dutch world number one Mike Schloesser won the individual titles at the 2019 European Indoor Archery Championships in Samsun, Turkey. The port town on the north coast previously hosted the World Cup final last year. Russia took both team recurve titles, with France taking the senior compound men's team title - there was no women's title competition due to the small number of competitors. It is thought the relatively low turnout was because of the events proximity to the start of an important outdoor season. Great Britain were not represented at the event.

full of eastern promise

The winners of the World Archery Athlete of the Year awards for 2018, voted for by an audience of their peers, were announced during the 2019 Indoor World Series Finals in February. Turkey’s Mete Gazoz and Yasemin Anagoz, aged just 19 and 20 respectively, were named recurve man and woman of the year, and winning by a stride, above 2016’s Olympic medallists and archers far more decorated than them. Their astonishing achievement had been recognised. Yasemin Anagoz had an incredible year which saw her crowned European champion in Legnica by beating former world champion Maja Jager; she anchored the Turkish recurve team to the ladies title too. This was on top of three World Cup mixed team medals with Mete Gazoz around the circuit. Even so, it’s fair to say no-one expected…

the rise and rise of casey kaufhold

At the start of 2018, in the U.S. National Indoor Championships, at just 13 years old, Kaufhold destroyed the senior, junior and cadet national records with a score of 1162 out of 1200 over two days of competition. For the incredibly consistent teenager with the explosive follow-through, this was the first real statement of intent. But then, at the first major indoor world series event of last year, the GT Open in Luxembourg, she won outright, taking her first senior title – but not before demolishing the cadet world record with 589 out of 600 in qualifying. In Nimes this year, she again scythed through the field to a gold final against the experienced Korean international Kang "The Destroyer" Chae Young, who had previously pushed her out of the running in Rome.…
