Sergio Pagni named champion of the 53rd Vegas Shoot

Feb 13, 2019 62

Sergio Pagni beat-out 23 other archers in the largest shootdown ever to take the compound open championship at the 53rd Vegas Shoot and win a first-prize cheque for USD 53,000. “I feel great. At the beginning of the  week, I said I was confident in my shot and I was sure to make 900. When I look back and see how many 900s were in the final with me, it was a very long, long journey,” said Sergio.

It is the second time the Italian archer has won the event in four years, having taken his first title at the 50th edition in 2016 from the lucky dog spot. “Winning as the lucky dog was a surprise, also because I won after the first end,” he added. “Here it was impossible to win on the first end so I took my time and was sure not to miss. I didn’t force the shot and I was confident with the 10.”
