Archery Guyana proudly announces that member, Wayne Gerald DeAbreu, represented Guyana at the World Archery Ranking Tournament, in Santiago City, Chile. This event also served as a Second stage of qualifier for Pan-American Games, Lima 2019 but regrettably Guyana did not qualify.
On Tuesday 2nd April, 2019 was the 72 Arrows Ranking Round as our Guyanese Archer secured position numbered 32 after shooting a score of 594.
On Wednesday 3rd April, he was up against Bolivia in the Eliminations but regrettably lost in the first round to Bolivia 7-1. The following day the Pan Am Eliminations continued and Wayne DeAbreu excited fans as he won against Barbados Archer, Brandon Field in the first round 6-0. He then went on to compete against Ecuador’s Lester Ortegon Morales where regrettably he lost with a score of 0-6.
Regrettably, Guyana as a result did not qualify to move forward to Lima, Peru Games but the reports out of Chile reveal that in spite of this being Guyana’s first participation at an international tournament, our Archer was competitive, and that it is certainly a promising start-up for Guyana’s Archery!
