Quintain took to the field this week in the junior men’s recurve category, that comprised of 55 individual archers. During the ranking round Quintain scored a solid 600, while battling  what the competition organizers are describing as very strong winds resulting in target stands, butts and tents needing re-anchoring. This score, which ranked him 39th overall in the field, meant that Quintain successfully made the initial 48 archer cut. From there he entered the knockout stages and was seeded against the 26th ranked archer, Buianto Tsyrendorzheiv. The Russian archer took the match 6-2, despite Quintain’s strong performance in the head to head stage.
 This is the first of many international youth events, worthy of our junior archers focus,  during the current outdoor season. Other events where we can look forward to seeing, Irish Male and Female archers in action in the  Junior and Cadet divisions include:
European Youth Championship – July, 18-23, Bucharest (Romania)
European Youth Cup Leg 2 – June, 21-25, Riom (France)
