All I can say is WOW. I am glad I was fortunate enough to see that shoot off. My hat is off to both Lundin and Reo for their performance, I left the shoot off when they announced Lundin had a 30, so I missed the challenge call, wish I would have stayed longer, especially when my shuttle ended up being late. lol. But anyways, good job you two, excellent shooting.

Can't help wondering if Lundin came away thinking he got robbed after the challenge. :suspiciou
I know, if I was announced the winner of a tournament in a foreign country and it got reversed, I would be suspicious unless the target showed it was no doubt.
Sure would like to see that particular target!

I doubt it, also I missed the part were he was "announced" the winner. His initial score was annouced, and per the rules, a second and third judge was needed to call one of his arrows. His "official" score was then announced and Reo won. Period.

The really interesting thing is Reo, protested Morgan's arrow, not his own. Again, per rules, however I can't help but think that was the major turning point in both of their mental games.

Reo and Lundin both thought the arrow was out and where surprised when the 1st judge called it in. So, Reo challenged the call.
The system worked perfectly. :thumbs_up
Give credit where credit is due!
Way to go Reo! :thumbs_up:thumbs_up

The way I understood it was they both thought Reo had a 29 and morgan 30. Reo had all but conceeded, until he saw how close to being a 9 one of Morgans shafts were, so he protested morgans arrow.

I will say one thing, for an archer, this is like watching the Masters. The best in the game are there, and only those at the top of their game are standing at the end. No one can deny that Reo has been the most consistant shooter as of late, shooting some of the best score we have ever seen.

IMPRESSIVE!!!!!!

Great shooting to all involved!

I was hoping to see the Dee/Reo moment though.

Congrats and thanks again for a fantastic show Reo & the other shooters, the WAF and Archerytalk!

Pretty much how I feel.
It had to destroy Lundin's mental game!
It would mine, Guaranteed!
It was almost like having to win the tournament twice for him at that point.

How do you figure that....Morgan and Reo both thought his disputed arrow was a 9 and 2 out of 3 judges called it a 9 too. Morgan KNEW he had not won it in that end. These guys are world class competitors, not some Joe from no-where USA.The system worked correctly and the Champion was eventually crowned after the shootoff resumed.

Nice job by ALL shooters, nice job AT, nice job WAF!! Now, if we could get some video of the other shootoffs...........
