After two years also young archers are back in an international competition.
For many of them this was the first experience, and some took also a medal back home, together with new friendships.
It was another challenging week, in Catez (SLO) for the first leg of European Youth Cup 2021, due to the crazy weather: sun, rain, cold and wind.
A lot of shootoffs and thrilling matches.
A really testing situation for the archery champions of tomorrow.
After the two Grand Prix in Porec and Antalya, finally also Team and Mixed-Team events were shot regularly.
In the end, Turkey is first in the final medal standing, winning 11 medals (4 golds, 3 silvers and 4 bronzes), in front of France (2nd) and Italy (3rd), both with 10 medals; a fourth place for host-country Slovenia (with 4 medals).
Second stage will take place in Bucharest (ROU) on August 2-7.
The upcoming event is the European Archery Championships in Antalya (TUR), from May 31st to June 6th, which will assign also the last Continental quotas for Tokyo2020 Olympic Games.
