Kimberley School of Archery students take Iron Man

Two students of the Kimberley School of Archery made some noise at the Iron Man competition in Lethridge last week

Two students of the Kimberley School of Archery made some noise at the Iron Man competition in Lethridge last week, walking away not with just gold medals but an equipment sponsorship. Jason Dekkers and Jessica Krewenchuk, both 16, beat adult shooters to win gold in the competition, which included a simulated hunting shoot as well as a traditional competitive shoot. Their results were so impressive that the archery company APA will now sponsor them, says coach Vladimir Kopecky, who picked up a bronze at the competition himself. The Kimberley Archery Club holds open shoots on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 7:30 p.m at Marysville School.
