Yelena Osipova Wins Gold at Kazakhstan Archery Grand Prix

Yelena Osipova from Taganrog ranked 9th in the mixed event and won gold in women's individual recurve bow.


"We shot in the heat, and in the storm, and in the wind. I broke an arrow when I got a bullseye. There is still room for improvement, but I am more or less satisfied with the results," wrote Elena Osipova on her VKontakte page.
