FIELD ARCHERY EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP
Soon, arrows of the arches will be shot in the middle of the old knights competitions.
Once, the arch was the tool to fight and survive, today this tool is used in the prestigious sport, i.e. archery, which is included in the Olympic sports disciplines. Field archery is the discipline of TWG 2017 and is much more spectacular than the traditional competition games held at the sports halls (the difference involves constant movement of the players from the target to the target, and the supporters follow the players, like in golf).
– We will have the pleasure to host the players from 21 countries. We are confident that together we will create an unforgettable sports event of high level. Organisation of the European Championships in Field Archery in Łańcut is a breakthrough event for us. It is in Poland for the first time we will have the opportunity to cheer on and watch the best players from the European leaders, says Zdzisław Kozlowski, the Chairman of the Polish Archery Association.
Qualifications will be held on 6 and 7 October (Kielnarowa, the Subcarpathian Province), while during the next days we will have the opportunity to watch eliminations, quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals in the competitions of women, men and teams (Łańcut, the Subcarpathian Province).
More information and the full program of the competition are available on the website: www.lucznictwo.ires.pl
We would like to remind that field archery is one of 31 sports disciplines of the 10th World Games 2017, which will be held in Wrocław, Poland.
