US Team Selected for World Archery Field Championships


The U.S. Team for the World Archery Field Championships in Zagreb, Croatia has been selected. The Team Trials held today at the Blaschke Exotic Deer Farm followed two days of intense competition at the U.S. National Field Championships.

The U.S. Team will benefit from the experience of archery veterans in Zagreb, including three Olympic medalists and several compound and barebow world champions. The American squad will also feature a brother-sister duo in Nathan and Karissa Yamaguchi, and a mother-daughter pair in Charlene and Miriam Trafford.
