BHUTAN BAGS GOLD AND SILVER AT THE WORLD ARCHERY CHAMPIONSHIP
Two Bhutanese won a gold medal each and another won a silver medal at the recently held 2nd Historical Archery World Championship in Hungary. Although the team of five participated in every category of the championship, the medals were won in the long distance target category.
The Historical Archery World Championship is a traditional archery competition supported by the International Archery Association. The competition is held after every two years. Bhutan also participated in the first edition in 2016.
More than 300 archers from 21 countries participated in the event. Bhutan Indigenous Games and Sports Association is already working toward hosting a similar international competition in the country next year.
