TEAM USA ON TARGET FOR WORLD GAMES ON HOME SOIL
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – One hundred of the world’s most talented archers have come to Alabama for the World Games, a prestigious multi-sport event focused on showcasing sports not seen in the Olympics. As the host nation, USA is fielding a strong team to represent on home soil in competition between July 8-15.
While the World Games was historically an all-field archery event, the compound discipline now shoots target archery and has been a major factor in the recent push for compound inclusion in future Olympic Games. The recurve and barebow archers will compete in the first major international field event since the World Archery Field Championships in 2018, since these Games were rescheduled from 2021 and the 2020 World Field Championships were pushed from 2020 to later this fall.
Our compound lineup features Paige Pearce, Linda Ochoa-Anderson and Wendy Gardner for the women’s event. Pearce and Ochoa-Anderson each boast many world titles, records and international podium finishes, and Ochoa-Anderson is the reigning silver medalist from the 2017 edition when she shot for Team Mexico.
