Shooters from across the globe descended upon Nimes for the second-to-last stage of the Indoor World Series. The largest indoor archery event outside the U.S., Nimes is considered by many to be the de facto world championship of the World Archery Indoor format, due to the high level of competition and global participation.

Men’s compound saw three previous Nimes winners on the podium. As discussed in this article, Team USA’s Braden Gellenthien earned a repeat trip to the top step, taking gold over fellow American Kris Schaff. Mike Schloesser (Netherlands) earned a hard fought bronze medal. Gellenthien used Easton’s SuperDrive 23, while Schaff and Schloesser chose Easton X23 arrows.
