MEXICO CITY, MEXICO - A successful second half of the 2017 season for Canada now culminates in a Bronze Medal team match between Canada’s Brian Maxwell, Crispin Duenas and Hamilton Nguyen and Korea’s Im Dong Hyun, Oh Jin Hyek, and Kim Woojin. After moving through the draw in Mexico City with wins over the Netherlands and Kazakhstan, Canada was only narrowly defeated by France with a shoot off in the semi finals, while Korea lost the other semi final to Italy.
Archery Canada is saddened to hear of the passing of Roger Garrod. Roger was Chair of the Archery Canada Rules Committee and was a tireless volunteer and contributor to archery in Canada. Our condolences go out to Roger's family and friends. He will be greatly missed.
