BAF in the process of selecting women archers


Dec 30, 2013

WomenBhutaneseArcherThe Bhutan Archery Federation (BAF) is in the process of choosing two women archers to represent Bhutan at the international competitions. They will be chosen from within the age group of 16-23, from the ongoing Winter Coaching Camp.

The General Secretary of Bhutan Archery Federation, Tsewang Rinchen, said archery has always been considered male-dominated sport. “This is a good opportunity for us to slowly reverse that concept and begin to have more women¬†participation.”

The coaching camp will also be held in Kanglung, Gelephu and Thimphu, which is scheduled to start from January next year.

This is first coaching camp for women archers.

    The general notion of BAF to think that the best archers live in Kanglung, Gelephu and Thimphu is very valid. If they are really interested to catch the best ones why not organise a open district competitions allowing anyone to compete and get a stock of all talents in the country. That will enable everyone (meaning everyone and not just privileged few) to participate and the BAF can pool these talent to make the national team.. is anyone listening????
