Fresh from winning every championship at the World Archery Indoor World Series in Las Vegas, Easton shooters dominated again by repeating the gold medal sweep, this time at this weekend’s finals at the European Indoor Championship held in Laško, Slovenia.
French X10 shooter Lisa Barbelin added the indoor title to her Outdoor European Champion achievement in the recurve women’s event, while French shooter Jacquey Clement defeated Olympic silver medalist J.C. Valladont for the gold in men’s recurve action.
“Mister Perfect”, Mike Schloesser of The Netherlands, again dominated men’s compound, wielding the Easton X7 for the win just one point off his world record perfect score in the finals, while Great Britain’s Ella Gibson took the gold in women’s compound, also with the Easton X7 arrow.
For the first time, the European Championship featured barebow divisions, and Team Easton took both of the inaugural Barebow gold medals, with 18-year-old Swedish sharpshooter Leo Pettersson taking the men’s title, and Italy’s Cinzia Noziglia dropping just two points in nine arrows to dominate her match in set play for the women’s barebow gold.
“We are proud to see made-in-USA Easton shafts in the hands of the finest archers around the globe” said Easton Marketing Director, Gary Cornum. “For 100 years, Easton shafts have dominated championships and we take the trust of the world’s top shooters very seriously as we continue our century-long commitment to ever improve the world’s most accurate arrows. Our team members are proud in this latest incredible achievement from Europe’s best archers”.
