Williams Lake archers Al Campsall and Fred Streleoff were both named last Thursday to represent Canada at the upcoming World Championships in Italy in October 2013.

The pair of Cariboo Archers recently participated for Team BC over the B.C. Day long weekend at the Canadian 3D Archery Championships at Silver Star Mountain near Vernon, both winning in their respective divisions.

Campsall finished first in the Masters Compound Open division and Streleoff took first in the Instinctive Recurve division, both impressing Canadian team brass enough to earn their spots on the world championship team.

The duo participated with close to 300 of the best archers in Canada. Campsall won his division by 28 points to claim his eighth Canadian championship. Meanwhile, Streleoff dominated his category by more than 100 points.

“Conditions were oppressively hot, the terrain was mountainous and the shots were challenging on all three days of competition,” Campsall said.

Now, they will both have the opportunity to compete against the world’s best.
