Scott Archery’s Domagoj Buden, Christie Colin and Kris Schaff won the bronze medal in the men’s individual compound division, women’s individual compound division and mixed compound team, respectively, at the World Games.
“The World Games is a special event,” said Scott Pro Staff Coordinator Darrin Christenberry. “Not just anyone can show up and compete. Having the credentials to be invited and then being able to shoot your way through some of the best archers on the planet is no small feat.”
The World Games are staged over a period of 11 days. Beginning with the Opening Ceremony and concluding with the Closing Ceremony, competitions in between are at the highest level in a multitude of diverse, popular and spectacular sports make up the mainstay of The World Games. Sports practiced on land, in the air, in and on the water, all concur in the pursuit of "Faster, Higher, Stronger". At quadrennial intervals, in the years following the Games of the Olympiad, the world’s best athletes in these sports unite in their common search for excellence during The World Games.
Buden soared past other archers in the first few rounds, but his excellence showed itself in the quarterfinals when he beat out his competition by one X. In the semifinals, Buden’s perfect score of 10x wasn’t enough, and was placed into the Bronze final match after the shootoff arrow, where he handily won by three points.
Colin started the weekend off jetlagged and qualified in 15th overall, but worked her way all the way up to the bronze medal match, where she shot neck and neck with her competitor. A windy course brought difficult shooting conditions, but Colin managed to win the final shootoff with a 10.
Fellow Scott shooter Kris Schaff also won the bronze medal in the mixed compound team division with USA teammate Cassidy Cox.
