1.       Passing of Alain Gravel  

It is with a heavy heart that Archery Canada announces the recent passing of Alain Gravel.

Alain died suddenly at his home October 10, 2011, at the age of 63 years. The funeral took place Saturday, October 15, 2011 at St-Alphonse de La Baie church in La Baie, Quebec.

At the 2011 Canadian Outdoor Championship awards banquet held this past August in Delisle, SK, Alain was awarded the prestigious D.M. Lovo Award for lifetime contribution to archery. Alain was unable to be on-hand to accept the award in August, due to a family commitment. Without question, Alain was a most-deserving recipient of the Award.  

Alain epitomized volunteerism. Furthermore, Alain consistently displayed a keen and genuine passion and love for archery. Alain’s contribution to Archery Canada and the Canadian archery community at large was far reaching and covered a wide spectrum of volunteer activities at all levels. At the national level for example, Alain served as: President and Vice-President of Finance and High Performance; Team Leader and Coach for a number of national teams; Technical Delegate and Director of Shooting at Team Trials and National Championships; and translator of numerous Archery Canada technical materials and issues of Archery Canada News. In addition to his many roles at the national level, Alain served in an array of capacities with the Quebec Archery Federation and with his community archery club – Les Archers du Fjord (formerly Les Archers de La Baie for which he was a co-founder). 

Alain’s contribution to Archery Canada and to the Canadian archery family is second to none. Alain quietly and deservedly earned the respect of athletes, coaches, officials, parents and volunteer/staff administrators from across Canada. There is no doubt that the body of work that Alain undertook and contributed to Archery Canada and to the Canadian archery community was extraordinary. Our dear friend Alain will be greatly missed.

Alain is survived by his wife Diane Gravel Mercier, his mother, Mariette Gagnon, her sisters: France Gravel (Benedict Turner) and their children: Luke and Julie (his goddaughter), Sylvie (Jean-Pierre Simard) and their children: Martin and Stephanie (his goddaughter), Lynda (his goddaughter) (Cauchon Serge), her aunt Miss Georgette Mercier, his cousin and goddaughter: Sonia Meyers. Alain also leaves to mourn many cousins, relatives and close friends from his local archery, bowhunting and kayaking activities.

With the endorsement of Alain’s wife Diane, Archery Canada is accepting in Alain’s name, donations to the Canadian Archery Foundation. Donations may be made by contacting the Archery Canada national office. Tax receipts will be issued upon request.

2.    2011 Pan American Games: Results

2008 Canadian Olympian, Crispin Duenas (Toronto, ON) reached the podium capturing the silver medal for Canada in men’s recurve archery at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.  The Games featured a number of the World’s best male and female archers. A total of 64 athletes (32 men and 32 women) competed in the recurve bow category, in both individual and team competitions.

In the gold medal match Duenas faced off against 2011 World Champion, Brady Ellison of the USA. The match was a see-saw battle with Ellison leading after the 3rd set.  Duenas shot a perfect score of 10 with all three of his arrows in the 4th set to win it and force a 5th and deciding set.  In the fifth set, Ellison shot first scoring a perfect 10 with his first arrow. Duenas then countered with a perfect 10 of his own. On the second arrow, the American shot another 10 while Duenas shot a 9.  On his third and final arrow, Ellison shot a 9, opening the door for Duenas to tie the match if he shot a 10, and to force a tie-breaker for the gold.  With his final arrow Duenas scored a 9, losing the final set 29 to 28 and consequently narrowly losing the match.

“I’m really pleased with the silver and to have fought to the last arrow to decide the gold against the current World champion”, said Duenas.  My results here are a real confidence booster leading into London 2012. The time and effort I’ve put in over the past 4 years with my coach, Joan McDonald, and also more recently with my sport psychologist, is really starting to pay some dividends.”    

The men’s team comprised of Duenas and 2008 Olympian, Jay Lyon (Winnipeg, MB) and international newcomer Patrick Rivest-Bunster (Montreal, QC), advanced to the bronze medal match in team competition. The Canadians narrowly lost to Cuba. Both Lyon and Duenas were on the men’s team that won a silver medal at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

In Women’s team competition, the Canadians were ousted by Cuba in the ¼ final round. The Canadian Team was comprised of 2010 Commonwealth Games team bronze medallists Marie-Pier Beaudet (Lévis, QC) and Kateri Vrakking (Etobicoke, ON) and rookie international competitor, Vanessa Lee.  Beaudet and Vrakking also were members of the women’s silver medal winning team at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro.   

 “The Pan Am Games have provided a great competitive opportunity for our archers.  I’m confident we can build on this experience and success as we head into the Olympic year,” stated Joan McDonald, 2012 Olympic Head Coach.

 

The Pan Am Archery Team is comprised of:

Women’s Team

Marie-Pier BEAUDET, Lévis, QC

Vanessa LEE, Toronto, ON

Kateri VRAKKING, Etobicoke, ON

Alana MACDOUGALL, Guelph, ON - Alternate

3.       2011 Parapan American Games Team

 

The para-archers representing Canada at the 2011 Parapan American Games, depart shortly for the Games.  The Parapan American Games take place in Guadalajara, Mexico, November 12th to 20th.

 

The Canadian Team will be led by 2008 Paralympian, Kevin Evans (Jaffray, BC). Evans is

a two-time World Champion, having struck gold in the Men’s Open Compound Bow category at

the 2007 and 2009 Para-Archery World Championships. In late May of this year, Evans was

named World Archery’s Athlete of the Week because of his early season success at the

international level. In addition to his World Champion titles, Evans is the holder of two world

records in his category.

Evans will be joined by fellow Canadian archers Bob Hudson (Leoville, SK) and Lyne

Tremblay (Magog, QC). Hudson has had a strong 2011 season, following a season-ending injury

in 2010.  At the Stoke Open international para-archery tournament held this mid-September in Stoke Mandeville, England, Hudson had a season’s best score and placement (4th place) and thereby secured a Paralympic Games quota spot for Canada in the Men’s Open Compound category. Tremblay, a 2008 Paralympian, is looking to be in the medal hunt in the Women’s Recurve Bow ARW2 category and in the process, secure a quota spot for the 2012 Paralympic Games.

 

Listed below are the athletes and staff comprising the Parapan American Games Archery Team:

  • Kevin EVANS (Jaffray, BC) – Compound Bow, Men’s Open category
  • Bob HUDSON (Leoville, SK) - Compound Bow, Men’s Open category
  • Lyne TREMBLAY (Magog, QC) - Recurve Bow, Women’s ARW2 category.
  • Vladimir KOPECKY (Kimberley, BC) - Team Leader
  • Linda GAGNON (Magog, QC) – Team Support Staff

 

Archery Canada wishes the TEAM ALL THE BEST at the Games!  GO CANADA GO!

6.       CAAWS Recognizes Canadian Archer Jordan Sequillion

 

The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) recently announced Jordan Sequillion of Kingston, ON, as one of five recipients of the 2011 Stacey Levitt Women and Sport Scholarship. The young women, from various regions of Canada, all share a passion for sport, serve as role models in their communities, and believe in empowering others to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Jordan is coached by Kathleen Millar of the South Nation Archery Club in Winchester, ON.

 

The Stacey Levitt Women and Sport Scholarship was established in honour and memory of the life of Stacey Levitt, a superior athlete and top student who was struck and killed by a car while jogging on August 30th 1995. Stacey participated in sport for the sheer joy of the experience, its camaraderie, its teamwork and its competition. This is the 15th year that the $2,500 scholarship has been awarded by her family to a young woman, a girls’ team or sport organization that exemplify Stacey’s ideals and qualities. Each recipient will receive $500 and a copy of the book I Am a Rose, which is a compilation of poetry written by Stacey Levitt.

2011 Recipients:

Jordan Sequillion, Kingston, Ont. – Archery

Angel Anderson, Edmonton, Alta. – Boxing

Sheena Dubyk, Prince Albert, Sask. – Wrestling / Hockey

Alannah MacLean, Sudbury, Ont. – Cross-Country Skiing

Jenna Spencer, Mount Currie, B.C. – Luge / Dragon boat / Canoe / Kayak

Sixteen year old Jordan Sequillion is an honour student at Kingston Collegiate and Vocation Institute High School (KCVI), a member of the KCVI athletics association, a natural athlete, and a promising archer competing at both the national and international levels.

Jordan was recently the youngest female recurve archer to compete for Team Ontario at the Canada Winter Games; she won a silver medal. Other achievements include winning a gold medal and team silver at the Canadian Indoor Championships, capturing a silver medal at the US National Indoor Field Championships, anchoring the gold medal for the Canadian Senior Team, and setting a new national record in the North and South America indoor event.

Jordan’s passion for archery led her to become a NCCP Beginner Level Coach, enabling her to share her love of the sport and encourage others to try it. In addition to training several young families, Jordan is actively leading the creation of her high school’s first archery club to encourage further participation in the sport. Jordan also shares her experiences and offers guidance to young archers through a personal website and blog dedicated to archery.

Jordan trains six days a week in pursuit of her Olympic dreams. Upon completion of high school, she plans to pursue a degree in kinesiology and physiotherapy, as well as become a national level archery coach to train the next generation of Canadian archers. Jordan’s strong work ethic, passion and love for the sport continues to motivate her today. She hopes that she can continue to inspire and encourage young athletes to achieve their dreams through their participation in sport.

14.      Update from CCES: Meat Contamination Potential While Abroad

Clenbuterol is a potent drug that has the potential to be abused by athletes to enhance performance by increasing lean muscle mass and reducing body fat. Clenbuterol is on the 2011 WADA Prohibited List and is classified under the S1 category of Other Anabolic Agents as it promotes muscle growth. Clenbuterol is not legally distributed in Canada and is not approved by Health Canada to treat any medical condition.

CCES urges athletes to use the utmost care and caution if eating meat while travelling abroad and to be aware of the potential for contamination. When possible:

 •Choose foods from a reputable source.

 •Avoid eating liver or liver-derived products while abroad.

 •Avoid eating unusual or exotic meat products.

 •Consult with team support personnel who have specialized training in travel nutrition and meal logistics to help stay healthy and perform optimally.

There have been reports in the media of clenbuterol use to promote growth in livestock, including cattle, lamb, poultry and swine. Such use is illegal in Canada, the U.S. and Europe and appropriate food monitoring programs are in place to ensure the safety of the food supply in these countries.

In light of the recent media reports and current research regarding the increased potential for the presence of clenbuterol in meat, particularly in China and Mexico, CCES wants to help athletes and athlete support personnel understand the potential risks.

“There is heightened concern about the serious anti-doping and health issues posed by the ingestion of clenbuterol-contaminated meat,” stated Professor Christiane Ayotte, Director of the INRS Doping Control Laboratory in Montreal. “Athletes should be made aware of the risk and act prudently to minimize their risk.”

The ingestion of clenbuterol even in low dose will have effects on the body.  As a stimulant, it will increase heart rate, temperature, sweating and blood pressure.  Other detrimental side-effects can be experienced at higher dosages and include headaches, tremors, cramps, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, nausea, palpitations.  These effects will be reduced as clenbuterol clears the system.

Athletes should be reminded that clenbuterol is not a threshold substance on the WADA Prohibited List, thus even a trace amount found to be present in an athlete’s sample collected for the purposes of doping control could result in an adverse analytical finding and potentially lead to a violation and the imposition of a sanction. However, each case is different with many factors to consider and in every case the athlete is allowed to explain how the prohibited substance entered the body.

CCES will continue to evaluate this issue and keep you aware of new developments as they arise. WADA has asked the Chinese and Mexican governments to investigate this matter in order to assist anti-doping organizations in assessing any additional precautionary measures.

 If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CCES Toll-free in North America: 1-800-672-7775 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

15.      AthletesCAN Launches “I Tested Positive?” Resources

Recognizing that athletes are subject to ongoing anti-doping regulations and testing, the “I Tested Positive?” resources were adopted by AthletesCAN to provide a straight-forward and independent guide to assist athletes should they be committed of an anti-doping rule violation according to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP).

This is an important resource for all athletes. The focus of this guide is to prepare athletes for an anti-doping hearing. Throughout the guide, links are provided to relevant portions of the CADP and to other resources that may be of assistance. The contents of the guide are presented in roughly the order that events will actually occur and each part of the guide deals with a separate topic or issue.

For the “I Tested Positive?” resources, visit:

1.       Passing of Alain Gravel  

 

It is with a heavy heart that Archery Canada announces the recent passing of Alain Gravel.

Alain died suddenly at his home October 10, 2011, at the age of 63 years. The funeral took place Saturday, October 15, 2011 at St-Alphonse de La Baie church in La Baie, Quebec.

 

At the 2011 Canadian Outdoor Championship awards banquet held this past August in Delisle, SK, Alain was awarded the prestigious D.M. Lovo Award for lifetime contribution to archery. Alain was unable to be on-hand to accept the award in August, due to a family commitment. Without question, Alain was a most-deserving recipient of the Award.  

 

Alain epitomized volunteerism. Furthermore, Alain consistently displayed a keen and genuine passion and love for archery. Alain’s contribution to Archery Canada and the Canadian archery community at large was far reaching and covered a wide spectrum of volunteer activities at all levels. At the national level for example, Alain served as: President and Vice-President of Finance and High Performance; Team Leader and Coach for a number of national teams; Technical Delegate and Director of Shooting at Team Trials and National Championships; and translator of numerous Archery Canada technical materials and issues of Archery Canada News. In addition to his many roles at the national level, Alain served in an array of capacities with the Quebec Archery Federation and with his community archery club – Les Archers du Fjord (formerly Les Archers de La Baie for which he was a co-founder). 

 

Alain’s contribution to Archery Canada and to the Canadian archery family is second to none. Alain quietly and deservedly earned the respect of athletes, coaches, officials, parents and volunteer/staff administrators from across Canada. There is no doubt that the body of work that Alain undertook and contributed to Archery Canada and to the Canadian archery community was extraordinary. Our dear friend Alain will be greatly missed.

 

Alain is survived by his wife Diane Gravel Mercier, his mother, Mariette Gagnon, her sisters: France Gravel (Benedict Turner) and their children: Luke and Julie (his goddaughter), Sylvie (Jean-Pierre Simard) and their children: Martin and Stephanie (his goddaughter), Lynda (his goddaughter) (Cauchon Serge), her aunt Miss Georgette Mercier, his cousin and goddaughter: Sonia Meyers. Alain also leaves to mourn many cousins, relatives and close friends from his local archery, bowhunting and kayaking activities.

 

With the endorsement of Alain’s wife Diane, Archery Canada is accepting in Alain’s name, donations to the Canadian Archery Foundation. Donations may be made by contacting the Archery Canada national office. Tax receipts will be issued upon request.

2.    2011 Pan American Games: Results

 

2008 Canadian Olympian, Crispin Duenas (Toronto, ON) reached the podium capturing the silver medal for Canada in men’s recurve archery at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.  The Games featured a number of the World’s best male and female archers. A total of 64 athletes (32 men and 32 women) competed in the recurve bow category, in both individual and team competitions.

 

In the gold medal match Duenas faced off against 2011 World Champion, Brady Ellison of the USA. The match was a see-saw battle with Ellison leading after the 3rd set.  Duenas shot a perfect score of 10 with all three of his arrows in the 4th set to win it and force a 5th and deciding set.  In the fifth set, Ellison shot first scoring a perfect 10 with his first arrow. Duenas then countered with a perfect 10 of his own. On the second arrow, the American shot another 10 while Duenas shot a 9.  On his third and final arrow, Ellison shot a 9, opening the door for Duenas to tie the match if he shot a 10, and to force a tie-breaker for the gold.  With his final arrow Duenas scored a 9, losing the final set 29 to 28 and consequently narrowly losing the match.

 

“I’m really pleased with the silver and to have fought to the last arrow to decide the gold against the current World champion”, said Duenas.  My results here are a real confidence booster leading into London 2012. The time and effort I’ve put in over the past 4 years with my coach, Joan McDonald, and also more recently with my sport psychologist, is really starting to pay some dividends.”    

 

The men’s team comprised of Duenas and 2008 Olympian, Jay Lyon (Winnipeg, MB) and international newcomer Patrick Rivest-Bunster (Montreal, QC), advanced to the bronze medal match in team competition. The Canadians narrowly lost to Cuba. Both Lyon and Duenas were on the men’s team that won a silver medal at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

 

In Women’s team competition, the Canadians were ousted by Cuba in the ¼ final round. The Canadian Team was comprised of 2010 Commonwealth Games team bronze medallists Marie-Pier Beaudet (Lévis, QC) and Kateri Vrakking (Etobicoke, ON) and rookie international competitor, Vanessa Lee.  Beaudet and Vrakking also were members of the women’s silver medal winning team at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro.   

 

 “The Pan Am Games have provided a great competitive opportunity for our archers.  I’m confident we can build on this experience and success as we head into the Olympic year,” stated Joan McDonald, 2012 Olympic Head Coach.


 

The Pan Am Archery Team is comprised of:

 

Women’s Team

Marie-Pier BEAUDET, Lévis, QC

The young women, from various regions of Canada, all share a passion for sport, serve as role models in their communities, and believe in empowering others to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Jordan is coached by Kathleen Millar of the South Nation Archery Club in Winchester, ON.

 

The Stacey Levitt Women and Sport Scholarship was established in honour and memory of the life of Stacey Levitt, a superior athlete and top student who was struck and killed by a car while jogging on August 30th 1995. Stacey participated in sport for the sheer joy of the experience, its camaraderie, its teamwork and its competition. This is the 15th year that the $2,500 scholarship has been awarded by her family to a young woman, a girls’ team or sport organization that exemplify Stacey’s ideals and qualities. Each recipient will receive $500 and a copy of the book I Am a Rose, which is a compilation of poetry written by Stacey Levitt.

 

2011 Recipients:

Jordan Sequillion, Kingston, Ont. – Archery

Angel Anderson, Edmonton, Alta. – Boxing

Sheena Dubyk, Prince Albert, Sask. – Wrestling / Hockey

Alannah MacLean, Sudbury, Ont. – Cross-Country Skiing

Jenna Spencer, Mount Currie, B.C. – Luge / Dragon boat / Canoe / Kayak

 

Sixteen year old Jordan Sequillion is an honour student at Kingston Collegiate and Vocation Institute High School (KCVI), a member of the KCVI athletics association, a natural athlete, and a promising archer competing at both the national and international levels.

 

Jordan was recently the youngest female recurve archer to compete for Team Ontario at the Canada Winter Games; she won a silver medal. Other achievements include winning a gold medal and team silver at the Canadian Indoor Championships, capturing a silver medal at the US National Indoor Field Championships, anchoring the gold medal for the Canadian Senior Team, and setting a new national record in the North and South America indoor event.

 

Jordan’s passion for archery led her to become a NCCP Beginner Level Coach, enabling her to share her love of the sport and encourage others to try it. In addition to training several young families, Jordan is actively leading the creation of her high school’s first archery club to encourage further participation in the sport. Jordan also shares her experiences and offers guidance to young archers through a personal website and blog dedicated to archery.

 

Jordan trains six days a week in pursuit of her Olympic dreams. Upon completion of high school, she plans to pursue a degree in kinesiology and physiotherapy, as well as become a national level archery coach to train the next generation of Canadian archers. Jordan’s strong work ethic, passion and love for the sport continues to motivate her today. She hopes that she can continue to inspire and encourage young athletes to achieve their dreams through their participation in sport.

14.      Update from CCES: Meat Contamination Potential While Abroad

 

Clenbuterol is a potent drug that has the potential to be abused by athletes to enhance performance by increasing lean muscle mass and reducing body fat. Clenbuterol is on the 2011 WADA Prohibited List and is classified under the S1 category of Other Anabolic Agents as it promotes muscle growth. Clenbuterol is not legally distributed in Canada and is not approved by Health Canada to treat any medical condition.

 

CCES urges athletes to use the utmost care and caution if eating meat while travelling abroad and to be aware of the potential for contamination. When possible:

 •Choose foods from a reputable source.

 •Avoid eating liver or liver-derived products while abroad.

 •Avoid eating unusual or exotic meat products.

 •Consult with team support personnel who have specialized training in travel nutrition and meal logistics to help stay healthy and perform optimally.

 

There have been reports in the media of clenbuterol use to promote growth in livestock, including cattle, lamb, poultry and swine. Such use is illegal in Canada, the U.S. and Europe and appropriate food monitoring programs are in place to ensure the safety of the food supply in these countries.

 

In light of the recent media reports and current research regarding the increased potential for the presence of clenbuterol in meat, particularly in China and Mexico, CCES wants to help athletes and athlete support personnel understand the potential risks.

 

“There is heightened concern about the serious anti-doping and health issues posed by the ingestion of clenbuterol-contaminated meat,” stated Professor Christiane Ayotte, Director of the INRS Doping Control Laboratory in Montreal. “Athletes should be made aware of the risk and act prudently to minimize their risk.”

 

The ingestion of clenbuterol even in low dose will have effects on the body.  As a stimulant, it will increase heart rate, temperature, sweating and blood pressure.  Other detrimental side-effects can be experienced at higher dosages and include headaches, tremors, cramps, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, nausea, palpitations.  These effects will be reduced as clenbuterol clears the system.

 

Athletes should be reminded that clenbuterol is not a threshold substance on the WADA Prohibited List, thus even a trace amount found to be present in an athlete’s sample collected for the purposes of doping control could result in an adverse analytical finding and potentially lead to a violation and the imposition of a sanction. However, each case is different with many factors to consider and in every case the athlete is allowed to explain how the prohibited substance entered the body.

 

CCES will continue to evaluate this issue and keep you aware of new developments as they arise. WADA has asked the Chinese and Mexican governments to investigate this matter in order to assist anti-doping organizations in assessing any additional precautionary measures.

 

 If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CCES Toll-free in North America: 1-800-672-7775 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

15.      AthletesCAN Launches “I Tested Positive?” Resources

 

Recognizing that athletes are subject to ongoing anti-doping regulations and testing, the “I Tested Positive?” resources were adopted by AthletesCAN to provide a straight-forward and independent guide to assist athletes should they be committed of an anti-doping rule violation according to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP).

 

This is an important resource for all athletes. The focus of this guide is to prepare athletes for an anti-doping hearing. Throughout the guide, links are provided to relevant portions of the CADP and to other resources that may be of assistance. The contents of the guide are presented in roughly the order that events will actually occur and each part of the guide deals with a separate topic or issue.

 year, Evans was named World Archery’s Athlete of the Week because of his early

Evans is the holder of two world records in his category. He also competes in many

domestic and international tournaments against able-bodied competitors.

2.       2011 World Youth Archery Championship

 

2011 Senior Compound Men’s World Champion, Chris Perkins led a strong team of 18 young Canadian archers to the 2011 World Youth Archery Championship in Legnica, Poland, August 22-28. Canada’s young archers competed well and gained valuable international experience. This bodes well for the future for these young, up-and-coming archers.

 

The highlight for our Canadian Team was the Junior Men’s Compound Team, comprised of  Chris Perkins, Mike Kupchanko and Keenan Brown, standing atop the podium as they were presented the gold medal. In the gold medal match against the team from the Netherlands, the Canadian Team not only displayed great shooting but also true sportsmanship. A member of the Netherlands team had to be hospitalized for a minor injury prior to the start of the match. Rather than accept the gold medal by forfeit, the Canadian Team requested a delay in the match until the Netherlands team was complete and then shot the match at the end of the competition. A fine example of sportsmanship!

4.       2011 Shanghai World Cup

 

Canadian compound bow archer Dietmar Trillus (King City, ON) brought home the silver medal from this season’s 4th World Cup of Archery event which wrapped-up Sunday in Shanghai, China. The silver medal performance clinched a spot for Trillus in the World Cup final to be held in Istanbul, Turkey this September 24th -25th.  

 

The World Cup of Archery series began in 2006. This year marks the 3rd time Trillus has qualified for the World Cup Final since he began to compete on the circuit in 2008.   He won the World Cup Final in 2008 and was crowned 2007 World Champion in the  Compound Bow category.

 

In the gold medal match, Trillus faced his long time rival, Reo Wilde of the United States. Wilde shot a perfect score of 150 points in the match. This year marks the first time since 2006 that Wilde has reached the World Cup Final. Trillus and Wilde will continue their rivalry in two weeks time in Istanbul. 

 

“Unfortunately, I had an equipment failure in the 3rd end and missed the target with my final arrow of the end. “I wasn’t quite into my rhythm today but Wilde certainly was on top of his game, shooting all 10s.” said Trillus. He added: “As usual it is an honour and privilege to be able to participate with the best archers in the World. It is also an honour to represent Canada and be able to compete in the World Cup Final. I’m looking forward to it!”

 

Four other Canadian archers also competed at the Shanghai World Cup.

6.       2011 Pan-American Games Team

 

Archery Canada is pleased to announce its team nominated to the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) to represent archery at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

 

The archery competition for the 2011 edition of the Pan American Games will take place at the Pan American Archery Stadium from October 17 to 22, 2011.

 

“We are really excited to go into the Pan American Games with an excellent mix of experience and youth on our team,” said Scott Ogilvie, Executive Director for Archery Canada.  

 

A total of 64 athletes (32 men and 32 women) will compete in the recurve bow category, in both individual and team competitions.

 

At the previous Pan Ams in Rio de Janeiro in 2007, Canada won silver in both the men’s and women’s team competitions. 

 

The men’s team will be comprised of two members with Olympic Games experience.  Jay Lyon, a 25 year-old seasoned veteran with four World Championships and a 10th place finish in Beijing, is coming off a record 5th place finish in the men’s Individual Recurve Bow category at the 2011 World Championships – the highest ranking for a Canadian recurve archer since the introduction of match play.  Joining Lyon is his 2008 Olympic teammate Crispin Duenas, as well as newcomer Patrick Rivest-Bunster who just competed in his first World Championships.  Both Jay Lyon and Crispin Duenas were on the team that won a silver medal at the 2007 Pan Ams in Rio.  To qualify for the 2011 Pan Am Games, the men’s recurve team finished second behind a powerful American team at the 2010 Pan Am Archery Championships, which was held at the Pan Am Games venue in Guadalajara. The team included Duenas and alternate Phillippe Arsenault, with Duenas winning a bronze medal in the men’s individual recurve category, defeating Serrano of Mexico who was 4th at the 2008 Olympic Games.

 

The women’s team features 2008 Olympian Marie-Pier Beaudet who will be competing with Kateri Vrakking and rookie Vanessa Lee.  Beaudet and Vrakking both competed on the silver medal winning team at the 2007 Pan Am Games in Rio.  As well, Beaudet and Vrakking were members of the recurve women’s team that captured the bronze medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, while alternate Alana MacDougall was the 3rd member of the Commonwealth Games team.   To qualify forthe 2011 Pan Am Games, the women’s recurve team finished 4th at the 2010 Pan American Archery Championships, therefore earning quota spots for a full women’s team for the 2011 Pan American Games. Beaudet, Vrakking and MacDougall were members of the 2010 Pan Am Championships team.

 

 “The Pan Am Games provides a great competitive opportunity for our archers.  We have a talented team that will be vying for the medal podium. We want to build on this experience and success as we head into the Olympic year,” stated Joan MacDonald, 2012 Olympic Head Coach.

7.       2011 Parapan American Games Team

 

Archery Canada is pleased to announce its team nominated to the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) to represent archery at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, November 12 to 20, 2011.

 

The Canadian Team will be led by 2008 Paralympian, Kevin Evans (Jaffray, BC). Evans is

a two-time World Champion, having struck gold in the Men’s Open Compound Bow category at

the 2007 and 2009 Para-Archery World Championships. In lateMay of this year, Evans was

named World Archery’s Athlete of the Week because of his early season success at the

international level. In addition to his World Champion titles, Evans is the holder of two world

records in his category. He also competes in many domestic and international tournaments

against able-bodied competitors.

 

Evans will be joined by fellow Canadian archers Bob Hudson (Leoville, SK) and Lyne

Tremblay (Magog, QC). Tremblay, a 2008 Paralympian, is looking to be in the medal hunt in the

Women’s Recurve Bow ARW2 category and in the process, secure a quota spot for the 2012

Paralympic Games. Hudson has had a strong 2011 season, following a season-ending injury in

2010.  At the recent Stoke Mandeville Open held in Stoke Mandeville, England, Hudson had a

season’s best score and placement (4th place) and thereby secured a Paralympic Games quota

spot for Canada in the Men’s Open Compound category.

·       Kevin EVANS (Jaffray, BC) – Compound Bow, Men’s Open category

The Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) celebrated Sports Day in Canada by announcing its high-performance team that will be competing in the 2011 Parapan American Games as well as its grassroots initiative to get more Canadians involved in parasport.

 

One of the largest teams in its history, a total of 213 members, will make up the Canadian team which will compete at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico, from November 12 to 20, 2011.

 

On the grassroots side, the CPC is marking Sports Day with the launch of a new online portal, www.paralympic.ca/getinvolved, with information on getting involved in parasport, whether as a coach, athlete, guide, official, volunteer or as a teacher, parent or health care provider.

 

About Team Canada at the Guadalajara 2011 Parapan American Games

 

The Canadian delegation includes 126 athletes, seven guides and 80 officials (coaches, managers, support staff, mission staff).

 

Canada's Chef de Mission is Rob Needham (CPC's Executive Director, Sport) and Assistant Chef de Mission is Jennifer Larson (CPC's Director of Sport).

 

"The Parapan American Games represent a crucial stage in the athlete development pathway, providing invaluable international multi-sport Games experience," said Needham. "Every Canadian athlete will be representing their country proudly in Guadalajara."

 

"These Games are a building block towards future Games and as such, Team Canada includes a mix of veteran athletes with previous Paralympic experience, along with some younger, developing athletes looking to compete in their first international multi-sport Games."

 

Future Games athletes for which athletes are preparing include the London 2012 Paralympic Games, the Toronto 2015 Parapan American Games and the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

 

For some team sports, Guadalajara serves as a direct qualifier for the London 2012 Paralympic Games, including Wheelchair Basketball and Sitting Volleyball.

In Memoriam Dennis Hooey 1941 - 2011

HooeyDennisobit

DENNIS FRANKLIN HOOEY

May 16, 1941 ~ September 13, 2011

DENNIS FRANKLIN HOOEY passed away on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at St. Michael’s Palliative Care Unit after a brief battle with cancer.

Dennis is survived by his wife Jude; children Tracey (Loewen) Schmidt of Fox Creek, AB and Kent (Kim) Hooey of Swan Hills, AB; stepchildren Jennifer (Dale) Warren of Vulcan, AB, David (Vivian) Forestell of Hong Kong, and Suzanne (Javier) Solsona of California; grandchildren Jared and Lilly Schmidt, Brodie Hooey, Hayley, Cameron and Ethan Warren, and Nash and Rio Solsona. He also leaves behind many friends and family who will miss him.

Dennis was born on May 16, 1941 in Swift Current, SK to Frank and Lillian Hooey. He was raised and attended school in Swift Current. After high school, he began working for Ducks Unlimited as a biological technician. He always said that this was the best job in the world.

Dennis met Jude in 1987 at the Craven Rodeo. They were married in 1989. Dennis owned and operated a second hand shop in Airdrie. All of his life he loved to “wheel and deal”.

In 1995, Dennis and Jude opened Archery Unlimited. Dennis enjoyed the people and working on archery equipment. He taught many archers how to shoot “stick” bows because that was one of his passions. Dennis was an avid archer, hunter, guide, camper, and fisherman. Dennis was a national and provincial champion archer who was inducted, along with his wife, into the Lethbridge Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.

After retiring, Dennis began to do taxidermy work. He was meticulous and spent many hours perfecting the mounts. He loved his family and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren of whom he was very proud.

Dennis will be sadly missed by his loving family and many dear friends.

A Memorial Reception will be held at 2:00pm on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at Country Kitchen Catering, 1715 Mayor Magrath Dr. South, Lethbridge.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Dennis’s name to the Archery Canada Foundation at Archery Canada Tir à l’Arc, 2255 St. Laurent Blvd., Suite 108, Ottawa, ON K1G 4K3. Send condolences at www.mbfunerals.com.
