World records headline qualification at TRUBall/Axcel Roma Archery Trophy
“I’m very happy. I had good feelings during the round and after several attempts, this world record has finally come,” she said.
“After this score, it would be nice to end this adventure in Rome with a gold medal but I honestly don’t want to think about the matches and final. I just want to enjoy this moment, this record and a performance that made me happy.”
Brazilian para archer Jane Karla Gogel broke the second world record of the day – for the compound women’s open category – with 577 points.
“When you’re competing, it’s impossible to know at first if there’ll be the conditions to beat the world record,” said Gogel. “But I felt good and knew that I could perform well.”
There was a three-way score tie at the top of the compound men’s qualification board. Macau Open winner Kris Schaff, GT Open winner Mike Schloesser and Dave Cousins all had 598 points for the 60-arrow 18-metre ranking round.
Schaff took the top seed, Cousins second and Schloesser third in a coin toss.
