The much-awaited 2022 Birmingham World Games is just a couple of months away to kick start its extravaganza from July 7 to July 17th, 2022. This time it is expected over 3600 athletes to participate from over 100 countries at the World Games. The games hold importance as they take place after every four years that display sports and disciplines not featured in the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Archery is also one of the sports disciplines to be contested at the World Games, where world-class compound target archers and recurve and barebow field archers will compete in the event. Archers from the USA from all around the globe competed last year to qualify for a full slate of quota places for this important multi-sport event. The USA being the host nation for World Games, a full roster of USA archers will compete in the compound and para compound open athletes.
Arizona Cup is slated to begin earlier this month in Phoenix, Arizona, where top-class USA Archery will attend the event comprising 26 men and 26 women athletes.
Linda Ochoa –Anderson and Paige Pearce will represent the USA compound women and Braden Gellenthien and James Lutz will compete in the men’s event. All of these four athletes have bagged world titles and are ranked as the top performers in the world.
At the para compound open archery, the 2019 World Para Champions Benjamin Thompson and Wendy Gardner will represent at the World Games competition.
From May 11 to 14 U.S team trials competition is organized in Yankton, S.D. in association with USA Archery Field Nationals to select recurve and barebow teams.
Being an exciting and important event, Archery fans are highly encouraged to cheer and welcome Team USA on home soil, which will showcase the best athletes and sports from all across the world.
