Impression of the day:

We had an extremely long day during the World Championships Field Archery in France. It is nice to shoot only the gold and bronze medal matches next Sunday, but the consequences for the program of Friday are huge. We first shot the first elimination round, 12 targets, with the barebowers in the Waterpark, which I followed that morning, recurve archers shot the Prairie, and compound shot the Mountain (and liked it). All targets where picked in the backend of these courses. Than we shot the second elimination round on 8 targets, in the same courses, but 8 targets closer down the bottom of the field. I followed the compound archers on the Mountain mainly during this stage of the competition. And finally, we shot the semifinals on 4 targets and I viewed the matches from the recurve archers so everybody got their fair share of pictures. These four targets were closely to the road, at the edge of the courses, so they could easily be followed by the spectators.

At the end of the day we had some surprising results, especially in the barebow division. None of the Swedish man made it to the final, which is between Alan Eagleton (USA) and Sebastian Juanola Codina (ESP). The match for bronze will be between Olivier Roy (FRA) and Giuseppe Seimandi (ITA). The ladies shooting for the gold will be Eleonara Strobbe (ITA) against Lina Björklund (SWE), who shot earlier that day a 35 meter target at 30 meters and was convinced her chances to even making it to these finals were gone.  The bronze match is between Andrea Raigel (AUT) and Monika Jentges (GER).

The recurve women gold medal match is between Elena Richter (GER) and Zoé Göbbels (BEL), bronze is Naomi Folkard (GBR) against Marina Szendey (FRA). In the men's division it is Jean-Charles Valladont (FRA) facing Jake Kaminski (USA) for the gold, and Jon Shales (GBR) will compete against Aurélien Rabanet (FRA) for the bronze.

In compound  the gold medal match is Paige Pierce (USA) versus Ivana Buden (CRO), competing for the bronze are Ulrika Sjöwall (SWE) and Petra Goebel (AUT). In the men's division we will see Jesse Broadwater (USA) and Slavko Turšič (SLO) shooting for the gold, and Sander Dolderman (NED) and Dave Cousins (USA) for the bronze medal.

The Recurve Junior Women final is Mirjam Tuokkola (FIN) against Marion Vives (FRA), and bronze is Sandra van der Loo (NED) against Brina Bozič (SLO). The Junior Men gold medal match is between Marco Morello (ITA) and Jesper Frederiksson (SWE), whilst Mark Nesbitt faces Paul Andre Hagen for the bronze.

The Compound Junior Women final is a match between Sabrina Franzoi (ITA) and Maja Orlić (CRO), the bronze match is Daisy Clark versus Runa Grydeland. The Compound Junior men final will be Alex Bridgman (GBR) facing Renaud Domanski (BEL), the bronze final welcomes Mario Vavro (CRO) and Domagoj Buden (CRO).

But that is the program for Sunday. First, tomorrow, we will shoot the team event.
