Representing Elite Archery with his Echelon 39, Schaff, seeded 10th, battled through qualification and elimination rounds to secure his spot in the gold medal match. The exciting shoot off against Netherland’s own #1 seeded Mike Schloesser ended in a 147-145 victory, after impressive series of 150-150-149 rounds from Schaff.
“Heading into the gold final, I was feeling extremely confident in my performance and in my equipment,” Schaff said. “Shooting against ‘Mister Perfect’ is a mental game in and of itself, but knowing I had the best equipment and training led me to the win and I couldn’t be more confident heading into Stage 4 in Vegas.”
Also representing Elite Archery at the Stage 3 Indoor Archery World Championship were teammates Logan Wilde, Darrin Christenberry and Reo Wilde.
“To witness Kris execute shot after shot hitting the middle-middle, was nothing less than electric,” said Darrin Christenberry, Elite Archery pro staff manager. “Kris has proven he is a top contender in the World Archery circuit and the entire Elite Archery team is excited to see what’s next for him at the upcoming tournaments this year.”
