The World Archery World Cup is celebrating its 10th year in existence in this 2015 outdoor season.
The event, which tours iconic locations across the globes for its stages and grand final, was started in 2006 as part of the World Archery Plan to give archers an international platform to compete on every year, give spectators something to follow, and keep archery’s media profile high.
World Archery president Prof Dr Erdener started on the organisation’s website that international event participation had started to grow with the launch of the World Cup 10 years ago, and it has continued to grow year-on-year since. World Archery has also revealed that the number of preliminary entries for this year’s World Championships, which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, is the highest ever with 647 entries from 94 nations with 100 days to go. The World Championships also acts as the major qualifying tournament for Rio 2016 Olympic Games places.
The first stage of the 2015 World Cup will be held in Shanghai on 5-10 May.
