MEMPHIS, Mich. -(Ammoland.com)- Prime Archery, a leading manufacturer of the most technologically advanced and highest-quality bows available, is pleased to report that Prime Archery Pro Staff (Italy) member Jacopo Polidori has won the Gold Medal in the Compound Division at the 2017 World Archery European Indoor Championships.
With the new Prime STX39 V2, Polidori finished 18th in the qualification round with a score of 587 out of a possible 600.
He then proceeded through four elimination rounds, with each round Jacopo over taking a higher seeded archer.
Jacopo, who switched to shooting a Prime Bow beginning with this year’s competitive indoor season, beat the current number one ranked archer in the World Archery Rankings, to win the Gold Medal.
Along with his individual medal, Jacopo helped Team Italy win the Compound Men’s Team Round as well.
“I'm honored to represent this special family at this event. The bows are great and the team is very supportive,” stated Jacopo.
“We really couldn't be happier for Jacopo. His determination, and perseverance over seemingly insurmountable odds placed him at the top of the podium, and we are pleased to be able to play a role in this great victory,” stated Matt Grace, President of G5 Outdoors/Prime Archery. “He is a great member of the Prime team and a true professional – we are fortunate to have him on our team.”
