2017 Fort van Lier
The Pro Archery Series returns to Belgium! The 2017 Fort van Lier event takes place on 12/13 August at the extraordinary field archery venue near Antwerp which combines scenic lakeside shots with tunnels, buildings, bunkers and skyline shots in and around a WWI fort.
In the ladies class Ivana Buden must start as favourite following on from winning both the Cartel Classic and Doinker Masters events this year. She will face stiff competition from US Pros Heather Gore and Mikey McGhee along with strong European talent including Isabell Thun, Inge Enthoven, Ulrike Wiese and Sarah Prieels.
Dave Cousins returns for his second Pro Archery Series event this year and will be tough to beat. All eyes are on the young guys including local hero Renaud Domanski, Domagoj Buden and Nico Wiener to cause an upset although the experience of Andre Grawinkel, Sander Dolderman and Chris White should not be overlooked. Chris will have the additional handicap of shooting alongside commentator Tapani Kalmaru all day on Saturday. Good luck, Chris...
