Pablo Gomez shoots 717 to set under-21 world record in Cali
Colombia’s Pablo Gomez has broken the compound men’s under-21 world record for qualifying, shooting 717 out of a possible 720 points at the first Junior Pan Am Games in Cali.
It puts two points on the previous world best for the 72-arrow round, which was set by Paolo Kunsch in late-2020.
“I’m very happy, satisfied with the result today,” said Pablo.
“I just broke my personal record and it feels really cool. To miss only three arrows is incredible.”
The 19-year-old’s score was only one point off the senior world record of 718.
Gomez and Maria Valentina Suarez (696) also combined to break the under-21 mixed team world record by 17.
Some 64 archers from 19 countries are taking part.
Competition in Cali continues until Sunday when all finals matches will take place.
