Bronze for Canadian Archer at 2013 World Cup of Archery - Medellin, Colombia

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

OTTAWA, July 22, 2013 - Canadian compound bow archer Dietmar Trillus (King City, ON) brought home the bronze medal from this season’s 3rd World Cup of Archery event which wrapped-up Sunday in Medellin, Colombia.

The World Cup of Archery series began in 2006. The 4th and final stage of the World Cup series takes place August 19-25 in Wroclaw, Poland. The World Cup final is September 21-22 in Paris. Trillus will try to qualify for his 4th World Cup final since he began to compete on the circuit in 2008. He won the World Cup final in 2008 and was crowned 2007 World Champion in the Compound Bow category.

Canada’s entry in the Men’s Recurve Bow Team event had a strong performance. The Canadians advanced to the medal round and first faced the team from Malaysia. The match was an exciting see-saw match with Malaysia prevailing with a victory of 220 to 219 points. Canada then went up against its arch rival from the USA in the bronze medal match. The Americans took the lead from the outset and didn’t relinquish it in winning the bronze. The Canadian Team was comprised of 2008 and 2012 Olympian Crispin Duenas (Toronto, ON), 2008 Olympian Jay Lyon (Winnipeg, MB) and Hugh MacDonald (Vancouver, BC). Their fourth place finish was a best-ever World Cup result by a Canadian men’s recurve team. All three athletes also competed in the Men’s individual Recurve Bow category.

Five other Canadian archers also competed at the Medellin World Cup. Ashley Wallace (Redcliff, AB) competed in the Women’s individual Compound and the Mixed Team event (compound bow) with Dietmar Trillus. Vanessa Lee (Toronto, ON) and Georcy-Stephanie Thiffault Picard (Montreal, QC) competed in the Recurve Bow category. On the men’s side, Simon Rousseau (La Prairie, QC) competed in the Men’s individual Compound Bow category while Patrick Rivest-Bunster (Montreal, QC) competed in the Men’s individual Recurve Bow category.
