Owner WR Custom Bowstring
Good luck to Team USA! Bring home the Gold!!!!!
John, this WC was self funded. When the top archers could not afford to go they made it an RA funded trip.676. Whew! Now that's shooting your bow.
Great performance by the U.S. recurve men. Excellent team rank. Jenny's absence is notable, but I suspect she has Oly. trials and college on her mind, as she should. Good to see Khatuna and Holly shooting well.
Still would like to know what's keeping our women recurvers from matching the performances of the men. There's something there that needs to be diagnosed and improved, I think.
Sometimes I don't know where my mind is.....?????????? Fanchin wins gold, Mixed team Lorig and Ellison win gold, Men's recurve team wins gold. Both Men's and womens team compound win golds. Mixed team Van Natta and Willet win bronze. There's no score up yet for Mixed team compound gold, so I figure that's what they're shooting now. It's 3: 53 AM EDT here..Take this all with a grain of salt. I hope I read everything right. It's not easy being old and can't sleep.There goes th Altzheimers again. I thought Jamie and Erika were shooting for gold and silver rather than semis....
I think it's wrong that they made it an RA funded trip at some point. I don't know what happened exactly, but according to the selection proceedures... they should have gone down the Rolling Ranking list until they found 4 archers who would self-fund. It seems to me like someone would have jumped at that unique opportunity (and could have used the experience).Guys, this was all covered under USAA's Team Selection Procedures. WC1 was last years ranking, WC2 was World Champs team, WC3 was Rolling Ranking after a tournament, and WC4 was self funded. Top ranked archers were given the opportunity to self fund to WC4. Those that turned it down were replaced by funded RA's (partially or fully I have no idea) like Barb said.
