Ogden (USA) – FITA News: Easton Sports Development Foundation will host the Archery World Cup 2012 Stage 3 at a new venue, the Golden Spike Event Center in Ogden, Utah. The World Cup event and Final Olympic Qualifier for Teams and Individual is scheduled on 17-23 June.
Prior to hosting the event at the Golden Spike Event Center, the competition was held at Weber State University (WSU). This year Promontory Towers at WSU are scheduled for demolition.
The Easton Foundations believe they carry a responsibility to provide the athletes with a competition venue that is free of all possible distractions during this important event.
It may not be possible at Weber State University with an ongoing construction project across the street from the competition field, so a new location has been decided upon.
“This decision has been a difficult, since the Foundation has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Weber State University. We feel the location change is in the best interest of the athletes who are attending.
Many of the athletes will not only compete in the third leg of the World Cup in Ogden, but will also compete in the Last Chance Olympic Qualifier, where those teams that have not secured a spot in the 2012 Olympics in London will have their final opportunity to do so,” said Robert ROMERO, Local Organising Committee President.
“The Easton Foundation would like to thank the Weber State staff for their efforts in making previous Archery World Cup events so successful.”
