Brady Haslam traveled from Medicine Hat, Alta to Lethbridge to participate in his second Ironman competition. He has been shooting for four years and works for X-Shot Archery, a company that makes lenses for the scopes of bows. Haslam explains that the lenses make the target easier to see and increases accuracy. He also notes the advancements in bow technology over the years have been significant.
The first Ironman competition in Lethbridge took place in 1993, and this year, 226 people are expected to participate. Jude Hooey, the president of the Lethbridge Bowbenders, mentions that competitors come mainly from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, B.C, Montana, and Alberta.
The Ironman event consists of two rounds of targets and two rounds of 3D, with competitors taking aim until the competition wraps up on Sunday.
