Tyack wins third Archery national title

6 March 2017

ARCHERY: Ryan Tyack has drawn first blood in what is sure to be a fascinating year for Australia’s three archery Olympic bronze medallists, winning the Australian Open in Brisbane on the weekend.

Tyack, who teamed up with two-time Olympian Taylor Worth and Victoria’s Alec Potts to finish third in the Olympic teams event in Rio, shot consistently over the weekend to nab his third consecutive Australian Open title.

It was the first time the Australian recurve trio have competed together in competition since the Rio Olympics.

Tyack, who finished a solitary point ahead of Worth in the ranking rounds, than beat Potts in Sunday’s matchplay final.

Potts had earlier beaten Worth 9 to 8 in a single arrow shoot-off after their semi-final scores were tied.

Worth was then relegated to fourth by NSW’s James Johnstone in the bronze medal match.

Tyack was looking to a strong performance after being disappointed with his performance in the individual competition in Rio.

He later revealed he had equipment problems in the lead-up to the Games which had affected his shooting technique.

In other results on the weekend, NSW’s teenager Belinda Maxworthy won the women’s recurve final, while South Australia’s Sherry Gale and Pat Coghlan won the women’s and men’s compound titles respectively.

Archery Australia will later this week announce the team to compete on this year’s World Cup archery circuit.
