Archers vie for world honors in Shanghai
The 2019 Archery World Cup is being held in Shanghai this week, gathering more than 400 archers, coaches and officials from 38 countries and regions.
The archers will compete in 10 disciplines, including men’s and women’s recurve and compound, as well as individual, team and mixed team competitions. Qualifying and knockout rounds are being held at Pudong’s Yuanshen Sports Center from Tuesday to Friday. They are open to the public and free.
The finals, scheduled on Saturday and Sunday, will be in Pudong’s Lujiazui area with tickets being priced from 50 yuan (US$7.4).
This is the 11th year Shanghai has hosted the World Cup. To bring the competition closer to the public, the organizers are connecting with a national amateur archery invitational tournament in Shanghai at the same time.
The World Cup has invited 12 amateur archers, including six young competitors, as representatives of the invitational tournament to attend the qualifying round of the World Cup at Yuanshen and show their skills on the same competition field with the world-class archers.
