The 20th Crossbow-shooting World Championship 2019 is expanding its geography and a number of athletes, promising to become record-breaking! The World Championship in Ulyanovsk 2019 is going to assemble about 350 athletes from 35 countries all over the world, instead of 200 crossbow-shooters, being applied for the competitions earlier.
The organizers of the World Crossbow Shooting Championship have visited Ulyanovsk, the city that is hosting the main championship of the year this August. One of the main agenda items was a meeting of the Organizing Committee, where a number of important issues on the preparation and hosting of the World Championship 2019 were discussed.
On August 24, 2018 one more sports organization was established. The date is very important to us as it was the day when the National Crossbow Shooting Federation of Latvia, that has recently joined IAU, was founded. Oleg Dorofejev, the President of the youngest National Federation told us about the history of its creation, its current state, future plans and perspectives.
IAU is expanding its boundaries! International Crossbow Shooting Union welcomes the Federation of Latvia that has officially been recognized as a new Member Federation of IAU. Therefore, in total, IAU now comprises 28 Member Federations, 16 of which are European.
Dear guests of the official website of IAU, for the convenience and ease of use of the resource, we have made some changes to the navigation system and added a number of features. Please read the innovations!
