4 mixed teams set qualification world records in Berlin
The top seeded mixed teams in Berlin from Korea and the Netherlands set archery’s first official ranking round world records for the pairs event at the fourth stage of the 2018 Hyundai Archery World Cup in Berlin, Germany.
The records were officially added to the rulebook by World Archery’s executive board before the tournament; previous scores were not claimable.
“I knew that I was shooting good but it’s always nice if your mixed team companion also shoots really good,” said Schloesser.
Both results have been ratified as the first official world records for mixed teams in qualification. Subsequent scores will have to be higher in order to be claimed and ratified as world records.
Additional records were set in the junior categories, for mixed teams in which both athletes were under the age of 21.
The fourth stage of the 2018 Hyundai Archery World Cup takes place in Berlin, Germany on 16 to 22 July.
