SAC thrilled by rising standards of archers


Some winners of last weekend’s shootout celebrate their achievements.

SIBU: Sibu Archery Centre (SAC) is encouraged by the response to its inaugural Barebow and Traditional Bow Shootout which ended last weekend.

Forty-five archers – 25 students and 20 adults – from Daro, Mukah and Sibu took part in the two-day tournament.

They shot over six ends and six arrows for the ranking round before the top 20 advanced to the knockout round.

Muhd Aazri won the open category followed by Muhd Azizi,  Wan Andy, Mohd Han, Ibnu Hatim, Roslan, Mohd Suharto and Berg Usry.

SMK Lanang’s Syukri, Nur Iman and Mikhail finished as the top three in the students’ category.

SAC manager Desmond Wong said the centre has attracted an increasing number of enthusiasts since it was opened about a year ago.

“Their standard has increased by leaps and bounds,” he reported.
