Easton Arrows the Choice of Champions at 2021 World Archery Championships
Following the massive success of archers using Easton arrows at the Tokyo Olympic Games, target archery’s biggest stage shifted to the United States for the 2021 World Archery Championships, hosted at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center in Yankton, SD.
For Team Easton, the domination continued, with archers using Easton X10 or X10 Pro Tour arrows winning 11 of 12 individual medals and taking every World Champion title.
Some of the highlights of the weekend include Sara Lopez of Colombia, the most decorated Women’s Compound archer of all time, finding the elusive Outdoor World Championship title that had evaded her thus far, and doing so in dominant fashion. Bolstering an already legendary career, South Korea’s Kim Woojin won his third World Championship in the Men’s Recurve category. South Korea’s Jang Minhee won her first World Championship, earning a victory over 17-year-old American Casey Kaufhold. Silver medal winner Kaufhold knocked off Olympic Champion An San in the semis, with San going on to win Bronze.
