London 2012: USA Archery Wins Silver Led By SD Athlete Brady Ellison!

Brady Ellison trains in San Diego more specifically at the US Olympic training center in Chula Vista. Ellison’s event is archery and he is the number one ranked archer in the world. Ellison led US in the upset of the defending gold medallist South Korea and lost to Italy.

This paragraph is from NPR.ORG:

On the first day of full competition in the London 2012 Summer Olympics, Team USA won its first medal of the games, as the men’s archery team took silver in a tense final against Italy. The Americans reached the final after stunning the highly regarded South Korean team in a comeback win earlier in the day.

Italy won on its last arrow, when a score of eight would have meant a loss and a ten a gold. The arrow hit the line between the 9 and 10, and in archery, that meant 10 points — and the gold medal. Led by world No. 1 Brady Ellison, 23, the three-man American team also includes Jake Kaminski, 23, and Jacob Wukie, 26.
