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.

On Sunday 19 September it was the compound women and
recurve men's turn to shoot their matches. The young
American Brady ELLISON proved just why he is a potential
Olympic champion of the future with a stunning victory in the
recurve men's event. ELLISON, 22, won the title with victory
over the current team Olympic champion IM Dong Hyun
(KOR) in the gold final.
In compound women the current world champion from Russia
Albina LOGINOVA also took gold. She won in a 1-arrow shoot-
off against Ashley WALLACE of Canada in a top quality final.
In each discipline the best mixed teams of the World Cup
season also came to Edinburgh to shoot against the host
Great Britain. In the recurve event team USA with Brady
ELLISON and Jennifer NICHOLS beat Simon TERRY and Naomi
FOLKARD 138-133. Nicky HUNT teamed up with Chris WHITE
to win the compound mixed team tournament 155-150,
beating Mexico's pairing of Linda OCHOA and Hafid JAIME.

Longines Prize for Precision
The Longines Prize for Precision was launched in 2010. The two most precise
archers of the World Cup season won the trophy, a watch and a 5,000 Swiss Francs
prize. The recurve athletes compete for the Prize in even-years, while the
compound athletes will shoot for it in odd-years. Brady ELLISON (USA) and Justyna
MOSPINEK (POL) shot the most 10s during all individual qualifications and matches
this season to win the Longines Prize for Precision (www.archery.org/Precision/).

The last World Cup stage of the year took place from 31 August to 4 September in Shanghai, China.
This event was the last chance to qualify for the World Cup Final 2010 Edinburgh.
The two individual gold medals at stake in the recurve division went to Korean archers, IM Dong-

In the team competition India won the gold medal in the recurve men's category and Korea in the

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 www.archery.tv.
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
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.

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.
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.

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. All completions were entered into a prize
draw to win a trip for two to the Edinburgh World Cup Final. 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 www.archeryworldcup.org.
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.
