2.         Canada’s Para-Archers Bring Home Six Medals from International Tournament

Canada’s Para-Archery Team stood on the podium a total of six times at the Czech Target international para-archery tournament  in Nove Mesto nad Metuji, Czech Republic, July 10th – 14th.  Canada was led by two-time World Champion Kevin Evans of Jaffray, British Columbia, who brought home two gold and a bronze medal over the weekend. This is the third gold medal performance for Evans in the lead-up to the Paralympic Games. Last month he won gold at the prestigious Stoke-Mandeville International Invitational in Stoke-Mandeville, England.  

 

In the Czech Republic, Evans stood atop the podium in the men’s individual open compound bow category and anchored Canada’s open compound team to gold. Rounding out the Canadian open compound team were Bob Hudson of Leoville, Saskatchewan and former Paralympian Alec Denys (Warsaw, ON). Denys came out of retirement two years ago after a lengthy and successful international career in para-archery.  On its way to winning the gold, the men’s team set a World record. The Canadians scored 230 points, breaking the previous world record set a year ago by Korea and then equalled by Italy. Both Evans and Hudson have been named to the 2012 Paralympic Team in the two spots earned by Canada in the men’s individual open compound bow category.

Bob Hudson shared the podium with Kevin Evans in the men’s individual open compound category when Hudson captured the bronze medal.  They also stood on the podium together at the 2011 Parapan American Games, where Evans and Hudson finished one-two. 

The Canadian women were led by Karen Van Nest of Wiarton, Ontario.  Van Nest struck silver after a strong performance in the gold medal match in the women’s open compound category. The silver medal performance marked her first time on the podium at an international tournament. Van Nest wasn’t satisfied with just the one podium finish. She and Kevin Evans teamed-up to capture the bronze medal in the mixed open compound team event. 

Norbert Murphy (Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC) captured the silver medal in the men’s ARW1 compound bow category. The silver medal was Murphy’s second international podium finish in less than a month. Last month he was the silver medallist in his category at the Stoke-Mandeville International Invitational.  This August and September in London, Murphy will be competing in his third Paralympic Games. He competed at the 2000 Sydney and 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games. Murphy captured the bronze medal at the 2009 World Para-Archery Championship and finished fifth at the 2011 World Para-Archery Championship (in the men’s ARW1 compound bow category).

Rounding out the Canadian Team was Paralympic-bound Lyne Tremblay (Magog, QC) and Rob Cox (Winnipeg, MB). Tremblay is a two-time Paralympian (Beijing 2008) and will compete in the women’s individual ARW2 recurve bow category. Cox is the Paralympic Team Alternate in the men’s individual open compound bow category.

The prestigious Czech Target para-archery tournament was a World Ranking Event and drew a strong field of world class para-archers in all categories. The tournament was the last major international competition prior to the 2012 London Paralympic Games. The full results for the Czech Target international para-archery tournament here .

 “I am really pleased with the results here and very proud of this Team. There was a strong and deep field in every category. Our athletes faced many of the top competitors that they will each face in London”, said Team Leader, Vladimir Kopecky (Kimberley, BC).  “It is definitely a confidence booster for the Paralympic Games”, added Kopecky. 

The 2012 Paralympic Archery Team will gather again in Victoria, BC from August 10th to 12th in order to compete at the fully integrated Canadian Archery Championships. The Team will then continue its preparation for the Paralympic Games and then participate in a brief training camp in the Toronto area before departing for London, England on August 23rd.  The Paralympic Games archery competition begins August 30th and continues through to September 5th at the Royal Artillery venue in London. 

The athletes and staff named to the 2012 Paralympic Archery Team are as follows:

  • Kevin EVANS (Jaffray, BC) – Compound Bow, Men’s Open category
  • Bob HUDSON (Leoville, SK) - Compound Bow, Men’s Open category

1.       Silver for Canada at 3rd 2012 World Cup of Archery

Led by 2011 World Outdoor Champion Chris Perkins (Athens, ON), Canada brought home the silver medal in the men’s compound bow team event at this season’s 3rd World Cup of Archery event. The World Cup wrapped-up Sunday in Ogden, Utah, USA.

Perkins and his teammates Simon Rousseau (La Prairie, QC) and Andrew Fagan (Ajax, ON), faced their arch rivals from the USA in the gold medal match. Canada and the USA have met three times before in gold medal matches at World Cup events.  The most recent was last year’s Ogden World Cup. The USA had won all three previous gold medal matches. Consequently, the Canadians were highly motivated to end their rival’s lock on the gold medal. With the exception of a slight error in the second end by Canada, the Canadians and Americans were in a tight battle for the lead. In the end, the Americans prevailed and kept alive their winning streak over Canada.

In the quarter-finals of the women’s compound bow team event, Canada’s bronze medal

winning team from the 2011 Odgen World Cup, faced the favoured Russians. The Canadian

team comprised of Camille Bouffard-Demers (Bécancour, QC), Dawn Groszko (Calgary, AB)

and Charlene Parlee (Sussex Corners, NB), put-up a strong fight losing by just two points.

Russia went on to win the team gold medal.   

In the men’s individual compound bow category, Canada had a strong tournament with two top-eight finishes. Chris Perkins reached the medal round where he competed against Pierre-Julien Deloche of France for the bronze medal. Perkins is currently ranked 12th in the world while Deloche is ranked 6th.  The archers had never competed against one another so there was no clear favourite going into the match. The match proved to be exciting with the lead changing hands several times. Deloche prevailed and captured the bronze.  Earlier in the quarter-final round, Andrew Fagan went-up against Deloche of France. Fagan gave Deloche a tough match but in the end was narrowly beaten, 149 to 147 points. As a result, Fagan finished a very respectable and personal best 6th place.   

In the women’s individual recurve bow category, Marie-Pier Beaudet (Lévis, QC), had a strong tournament, finishing 6th and bringing home another top 8 finish for Canada. In the quarter-final round, Beaudet faced Kristina Timofeeva of Russia. A see-saw battle ensued with Timofeeva eventually winning in a tie-breaker. The Russian went on to win the gold medal. Beaudet, a two-time Olympian (2004 and 2008), was recently nominated to the COC by Archery Canada for the one spot earned by Canada in the women’s individual archery category at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

2.       Canadian Archers Nominated for London 2012 Paralympic Games

A strong team of five archers has been nominated by Archery Canada to the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) for entry into the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

The Canadian contingent will be led by 2008 Paralympian and 2011 Parapan American Games gold medallist, Kevin Evans (Jaffray, BC). Evans is also a two-time defending world champion, having struck gold in 2007 and 2009 in the Men’s Open Compound Bow category.

“I’m really pleased and excited about returning to the Paralympic Games,” said Evans. “Last season was a bit rough with some untimely injuries, but things are definitely looking up this season and for the Paralympics.”

Joining Evans will be first-time Paralympian Bob Hudson (Leoville, SK). Hudson captured the silver medal in his category at the 2011 Parapan American Games. Both Hudson and Evans will compete in the men’s Compound Bow, Open category.

Lyne Tremblay (Magog, QC), a 2008 Paralympian, will compete in her second Paralympic Games. Tremblay will compete in the women’s Recurve Bow, ARW2 category.

Karen Van Nest (Wiarton, ON) will be competing in her fourth Paralympic Games. She competed in the 2000 Sydney, 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games in pistol shooting. The London 2012 Paralympic Games will mark the first time she competes as an archery athlete. Van Nest will compete in the women’s Compound Bow, Open category.

Rounding-out the strong Canadian contingent is international veteran Norbert Murphy (Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC). Murphy will be competing in his third Paralympic Games. He competed at the 2000 Sydney and 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games. Murphy captured the bronze medal at the 2009 World Para-Archery Championship and finished fifth at the 2011 World Para-Archery Championship (in the men’s Compound Bow, ARW1 category).

The five archers nominated to the Canadian Paralympic Team for London is an increase from the three who competed at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games four years ago.

“I am really happy to see the fantastic growth in Paralympic archery with a record number of athletes being nominated to the London 2012 team with real chances of medals,” said Gaétan Tardif, Chef de mission for Team Canada.

Vladimir Kopecky (Kimberley, BC) is Archery’s Team Leader for the Games.

“I believe we have a very strong team and that we have a real chance to be on the podium,” Kopecky said. “We are going to the Games to do Canada proud.”

7.       Canadian Archers For A Cause - Shoot For A Cure

Hello Everyone: 

I am putting out a call to one and all to dig deep into their wallets and purses and to help me spread the word far and wide!

As many of you know, my father has had a beard for probably as long as you have known him.  In fact it has been 30 years he has had that same beard!  I do not remember ever seeing his chin.

After a lot of convincing, I have worn him down.  He will be donating his chin this year to the annual Canadian Archers For A Cause - Shoot For A Cure held annually at the Bow Shop in Waterloo.  Last year alone, this tournament raised over $9,000 all sent to breast cancer research.  This year we are hoping to do even better.  Check out the web page for tournament information as well instructions on how to donate.  This year the shoot will be held on January 21st at The Bow Shop in Waterloo.  http://www.bow-shop.com/breastcancer-cs.html

As I'm sure you can imagine, Dad is pretty attached to his beard and I'm hoping to make his beard a worthwhile incentive for donations to a great cause from across Canada.  

I have attached a JPEG and a PDF of a small flyer we have made in honour of his first shave in 30 Years.  I am asking for not only your donations, but I would like all of you to help me get the word out far and wide.  Please post this information on provincial and club web pages where possible, email to friends and family, contribute personally.  There is not a lot of time for us to pull all of this together as the shoot is being held January 21, 2011 but I REALLY appreciate any assistance you can give. 

Not only are we shaving his beard, we are planning on shaving it in the middle of the range as part of the weekend event.  Of course this will be well documented via photos and will be dispersed for entertainment value after the shoot.  What else would a good daughter do?!

Donations can be made by contacting Michael Martin at The Bow Shop at (519) 746-8139 or via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it "> This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Any size donation is greatly appreciated and can be made via cash, cheque, or credit card.

If you have any questions or would like more information please do not hesitate to contact me.  Sorry if you receive this information more than once as I'm trying to get the word out quickly due to our short time lines.

Thank you very much.

Racheal Savage
