The 2020 Indoor Archery World Series kicked off last week in Macau, China. It marked the beginning of the 2020 Tournament season and was the inaugural event for the all-new Hoyt INVICTA compound target bow.
The INVICTA wasted no time proving it's dominance, with Mike Schloesser shooting a perfect 600 in the ranking rounds and fellow Hoyt shooter Kris Schaff shooting only 2 points behind with a strong 598. Schloesser and Schaff continued to dominate with their INVICTA's in hand, dispatching all competitors during the elimination rounds until it they were the last two standing. They would face off for Gold where Schaff, the reigning Indoor Archery World Series Champion, would edge out Schloesser to take home the Gold.
Shloesser and Schaff congratulate each other after dominating the competition at Macau Open.
In the women's bracket, Andrea Robles, shooting her new Hoyt INVICTA, had to face stiff competition through all elimination matches, but in the end, she upset the top seeds and took home a Gold medal of her own. "I’m feeling really good. I’m feeling really happy that I [won], especially because it’s my first time at these events,” she said. “I’m just having fun with it, training my best and enjoying."
