"HORN" Number 46
The tournament was attended by more than 70 archers from 12 regions of the country, including twice world champion in archery Albina Loginova. Traditionally, the competition consisted of two rounds starting at 20 «beasts» each.
The 3-D shooting – This type of archery, where archers shoot at targets, having the form of live animals, a life-size, in terms of the natural landscape.
Tee were set up using all the features of the local topography, the second round was much larger than the first. The shooting was carried up and down and in the open field. Looking ahead, I will say that the two days of competition held under the scorching sun, and only in the final on the horizon rain clouds.
Organizers do not miss the opportunity to use not only the hilly terrain, but the play of light and shadow. For example, a bear standing in the woods, was practically invisible for shooters compound bow, as she was shooting for position in the bright sun. Therefore, many athletes were mistaken in assessing the distance to the target.
By the number of arrows, flown by the first day of competition unconditional «a victory» He won a target number 1 – black goat, which was shot with a warm-up of the field up the hill. Many blunders was a white wolf that stood in the midst of thick grass. It seemed that he was next, but the boom members one by one went up and lost in the dry grass.
The winners of the competition in the individual competition were: Sergei Sapegin (Traditional Bow, Ulyanovsk), Ivan Basalaev (Long Bow, St. Petersburg), Lyudmila Lareva (Long Bow, Ryazan), Dmitry Antonov (Instinct, Moscow), Rinat Bakkasov (Instinct / children , Nizhny Novgorod), Vyacheslav Kalugin (bare bow, Moscow), Maxim Kuznetsov (Marseille, Moscow), Sergei Niskoblinov (block bow / hunter, Moscow), Oleg Poluboyarov (block bow / outdoor, Moscow region).
In the team championship competed 14 teams. The finalists were teams: «Mad Jack». «Russia». «Moscow» and «Eurasia». The intense struggle for the gold team «Moscow» (Michael rabble Vyacheslav Kalugin and Ilya Antoniuk) aimed shots leaves no chances for winning team «Eurasia». Total final firing speaks for itself: 106: 117 in favor «Moscow». Third place went to the team «Russia».
The final stage of the Cup of Russia will be held in late September in Penza.
