In the gold medal match, he missed the gold by a mere 2 points, putting him in second place.
Tanja Gellenthien made yet another showing on the podium for this year’s indoor season! Tanja worked her way up through the bracket to the bronze medal match where she beat out her competitor by one point for the bronze medal, 148-147. So far, she has podiumed at every single indoor event she has participated in!
Braden Gellenthien had a good showing this past weekend, where he had a series of tight matches leading up to his bronze medal match! He won his first three matches, 149-148, 149-148 again, and tied his third match 148-148 with a closest-to-center one-arrow shoot-off.

Finally, we would like to give a shoutout to Aljaz Brenk who competed at Nîmes in the compound men’s U21 division. The scores in this division from first to fourth place were so tight that there was only a point difference between each place. Aljaz scored a 589 putting him in second!
