Pan Am Championships programme streamlined, remains scheduled for March

Targets from above at the 2019 Pan Am Championships in Medellin.

Pan American Championships typically combine senior, youth, masters and para competitions – which are separate at the world level – awarding continental titles across all the age groups and categories in a single event.

This was set to change with the introduction of the Pan American Youth and Masters Championships, which were awarded to Halifax, Canada in 2022.

The timeline for this split has now been brought forward by one year.

To ensure that organisers of this year’s Pan American Championships in Monterrey, Mexico can abide with local health regulations and ensure the wellbeing of all participants, the youth and masters categories are being removed and will instead be awarded at the world ranking event recently rescheduled for May in Medellin, Colombia.

Monterrey will retain the recurve, compound, barebow and para championships – and the Americas’ continental qualification tournaments for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The event starts on 22 March and runs until 28 March 2021.

The Olympic places awarded in Monterrey will be the first distributed since the Asian Archery Championships held in Bangkok, Thailand at the end of 2019.
