It’s official. An unprecedented four Cariboo Archers have been selected to Team Canada for the 2015 3D Archery World Championships.

Fred Streleoff, Dan Mobbs, Jessie Mobbs and Al Campsall will represent Canada at the event after all shooting well earlier this month at the Canadian Archery Championships in Lac La Biche, Alta.

Streleoff finished fifth overall at the 2013 world championships in Italy, while Campsall shot to a 31st-place finish in 2011 and a 30th-place finish in 2013 in Austria and Italy, respectively.

For Dan and Jessie, this will be their first time competing at a world championship.

“Having four members from our club on Team Canada is pretty exciting,” Campsall said. “All four of us are incredibly dedicated and I am so proud to be associated with the three of them.” Canada is allowed to select 27 competitors from around the country to compete in various archery categories — longbow, compound, instinctive and barebow — based on their scores from Archery Canada-sanctioned events.
