  • Archery World Cup Final 2010 Edinburgh

    The fifth Archery World Cup Final took place on 18-19 September 2010 in Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. East Princes Street Gardens provided a spectacular venue for the biggest World Cup Final ever, with this year’s event involving 32 archers instead of 16. It was also the first time the Final was held over two days. First up on Saturday 18 September were the men’s compound and women’s recurve events. Italy’s Sergio PAGNI became an Archery World Cup history maker when he became the first archer to successfully defend a Grand Final title. He took the men’s compound title with victory over Braden GELLENTHIEN of the United States, in what was a repeat of the gold medal match 12 months before in Copenhagen.

    A Korean archer won the recurve women’s World Cup Final gold medal for the second year running. YUN Ok Hee followed in the footsteps of KWAK Ye Ji 12 months before by defeating Ukraine’s Victoriya KOVAL in a tense final.

    World Archery Fan Reporters

    This season World Archery introduced a new volunteer media programme called Archery Fan Reporter (AFR) in their major events. The reporters developed daily stories (3-5 minutes in length) about aspects of major archery international events that were posted on The four selected reporters Melis BAGATIR (TUR), Robert HANSON (USA), ZHU Tian Shun and SONG Jia Yi (CHN) posted 20 videos on the Archery TV on YouTube that have been viewed more than 42,000 times so far. Melis BAGATIR from Turkey was the first one to take this role at the Field World Championships in Visegrad (HUN) in July. Then, 30-year old Robert HANSON (USA) took the role at the World Cup Stage 3 in Ogden, USA in August. Finally, ZHU Tian Shun and SONG Jia Yi (CHN) were the AFR in Shanghai for the World Cup stage 4 at the beginning of September. SONG Jia Yi, Cedric ROGER (FITA TV), ZHU Tian Shun

    The reporters were helped by the expertise of Hit the Roof Sàrl, which ensures the TV production of the archery broadcasts. Finally the pool of 2010 AFR was judged by a FITA review panel and the two Chinese candidates were declared the winners.

    Robert HANSON was invited to the World Cup Final in Edinburgh on 18-19 September 2010 to film the 'back of the scenes' of the event. ZHU Tian Shun and SONG Jia Yi will be invited by World Archery to go to Porec, Croatia for the World Cup 2011 Stage 1. They will perform the AFR videos in this competition as the prize of winning the contest in 2010. Archery TV

    The official highlights and Archery Fan Reporter's videos of the Archery World Cup Final 2010 Edinburgh are now on Archery TV. All matches have been published. The videos of the Archery Fan Reporter Robert HANSON (USA) in Edinburgh are also available on

    World Archery Fan Questionnaire

    In February 2010 World Archery launched a questionnaire to know what archery fans think of World Archery events and how they follow archery in general.

The winner of the contest was Laura KOURULA from Finland by drawing lots among the more than 1,400 fans who replied to the online survey. She took the trip to Edinburgh with Matti HATAVA. They are both 29-year old archers competing in Finland and at international level. Read their interview on

    Honours Olympic Champion meets Pope Benedict XVI

    The Italian Archery Federation represented by FITARCO President Mario SCARZELLA, 2004 Olympic champion Marco GALLIAZO, and FITA Secretary General and FITARCO Honorary Member Tom DIELEN, had the honour to be presented to the Pope Benedict XVI during his audience on 15 September 2010 at the Vatican. FITARCO was chosen by the Pope as they had won most medals in major international competitions the last years as Italian Federation. Other Italian team members present included Mauro NESPOLI, silver medallist at the Beijing Games, Natalia VALEEVA, twice world champion and Olympic bronze medallist, Olympian Elena TONETTA, Jessica TOMASI and the most recent medallist, Gloria FILIPPI who won gold at the Youth Olympics. Also present was the Paralympic medallist Oscar DE PELLEGRIN, new world record holder and the FITARCO Secretary General Alvaro CARBONI. Mario SCARZELLA presented a small silver bow to the Pope and informed him of the Archery World Cup Final taking in Edinburgh this week- end. Due to a coincidence in planning, the Pope will actually visit Edinburgh on Thursday and will pass next to the venue for the World Cup Final! During the audience close to 10,000 people were present and it was broadcast live on TV. After the audience a special visit was organised and the FITARCO delegation were also welcomed by the Vicario of the Vatican and the Secretary General of the Vatican.
