SOUTHLAND Archery Club member Adam Kaluzny has been selected to join the Archery New Zealand national team for the World Cup stage one in Shanghai next month.

Kaluzny was selected for the 16-strong national team after winning a selection competition in Rotorua last month.

“The conditions were challenging in Rotorua but I was hoping to get this result,” he said.

Kaluzny said selection for the national team was his biggest success to date.

“When I started shooting five years ago I knew I wanted to compete and improve my skills. I would like to carry on over the next few years on a high level.”

He said he expected to shoot well in the match play stage.

“With the knowledge that you are on the shooting line with the best, I would like to be able to overcome nerves and emotions and to shoot well.”

In the lead up to the World Cup, Kaluzny said he would participate in competitions in Christchurch, a competition in Invercargill next week and a training camp with the Archery New Zealand national team.affiliate link traceNike sneakers
