Technical officials named for Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games
The team of international technical officials – or judges – for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games has been officially announced following its approval by World Archery’s executive board.
It is almost the same group that officiated at last year’s Olympic test event. The only change is that Indranil Datta has replaced Lian Wang, who will instead attend the Olympic Games with the Chinese team and officiate at the Paralympics.
There are 14 judges plus two alternates on the list.
Hannah Brown will act as chair and Robert Erica as deputy, while Vladimir Dominguez takes the role of director of shooting.
Two judges, Karla Cabrera and Sabrina Steffens, will officiate at their second consecutive Olympics. Graham Potts, who was chair of the commission at Rio 2016, is a member of the jury of appeal at Tokyo 2020.
A further 14 judges plus two alternates have been named for the upcoming Paralympics. That team will be chaired by Bob Pian, has Katy Lipscomb as deputy and Andrea Bortot as its director of shooting.
A full list of technical official assignments for the 2020 Hyundai Archery World Cup season is also available.
