X10 Archers Sweep Another World Cup Event
Easton Arrows Used in Taking Every Gold, Silver, & Bronze Title and
Easton Pro, Reo Wilde, Makes World Cup History
Ogden, Utah, 25 June 2012—Archers Use Invincible X10 & X10 Pro Tour to win all team and individual classes at 3rd Stage World Cup.
The third stage of the 2012 Archery World Cup concluded the Ogden Utah event on Sunday with Easton A/C X10 arrows being used to win in all medal matches in every class. There is no room for error at this level of archery so equipment choice is critical for World Cup athletes. Virtually every athlete uses X10 or X10 Pro Tour at this level of competition, and an X10 was used to win every medal match in Ogden.
In the compound men’s finals on Saturday, Easton Factory Pro, Reo Wilde (United States), squared off against fellow Easton shooter Peter Elzinga (Netherlands). Wilde is currently 1st in the world rankings and he is the reigning indoor world champion. He had won the first two World Cup stages this year and was looking to make it a clean sweep in Ogden. Elzinga and Wilde met at the first World Cup this year in the quarterfinals where Wilde won149-144.
After three ends Elzinga led Reo by one point 87-86. Wilde made a strong come back in the fourth end shooting 10-10-10. Elzinga shot 9-9-10 giving Wilde a one point advantage with three arrows remaining.
In the last end, Elzinga shot 10-10-9 for 144 total points. Wilde shot 10-9 and needed a 10 to win. He shot a 10 to win the gold medal to make it three straight 2012 World Cup stage wins this season, and four in a row going back to 2011. Reo made history as the first archer to win four World Cup stages in succession (Shanghai 2011, Shanghai 2012, Antalya 2012, and Ogden 2012).
Exacting standards of precision-built A/C X10 provides the most consistent spine, straightness, and weight specifications. Arrows of this caliber have the ability to transfer the marksmanship of the athlete straight & true to the target and perform better in the wind. For these reasons, A/C X10 & X10 Pro Tour are the overwhelming arrows of choice for outdoor competition and have been used to win every Olympic medal since the 1996 X10 introduction.
