Schloesser among archers taking outdoor season headstart in Mexico
Recently-crowned World Archery Indoor Champion Mike Schloesser is among the top archers to begin their outdoor season a little early in 2018, at the popular open-entry Versus MX Shoot, being held on 21-25 March in 2018 at the Pan American Archery Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico.
“The reason that I’m going is that it is a well-organised tournament early in the season with great weather and a lot of scoring arrows that serves as a perfect preparation to get into the outdoor competition feeling,” said Mike.
The five-day tournament, which attracts some of the world’s best ahead of the official start of the international outdoor season in Shanghai, consists of qualification, a round-robin format group stage, elimination and finals phases.
While amateur archers have an opportunity to go head-to-head with pros, world-class archers get an intense five days of training.
“[I would recommend it to upcoming archers] because It has a qualification round and pool system rounds where you get to shoot a lot of arrows and a lot of matches, which is something that you might not be able to do at other tournaments,” said Schloesser.
More than $30,000 USD in prize money is available across the divisions.
