Las Vegas, Nevada (February 10, 2014) – The 2014 NFAA “Vegas Shoot” and World Archery Festival was held in Las Vegas, Nevada February 7th through the 9th. The world renowned tournament, known as the largest and most prestigious indoor archery tournament in the entire world, pits the most accurate archers from around the globe in an intense 3-day competition with absolutely no room for error.
After the grueling 3-day tournament, the record breaking field of 2,200 archers was narrowed down to the very best of the best and it was Team Hoyt lighting up the night in unprecedented fashion. Team Hoyt archers, Mike Schloesser (NED), Sebastien Peineau (FRA) and Rob Morgan (USA) put on an unbelievable display of accuracy in front of the monster crowd as they outlasted the field of fourteen archers who had made it to the sudden death shoot-off in the Men’s Freestyle Unlimited division. In the end, Schloesser took the gold and the coveted $25,000 first place prize, also making him the first European archer to ever win the Vegas title. Peineau finished with Silver and Morgan with the Bronze for an all Team Hoyt sweep for the second year in a row. All three archers were shooting the Pro Comp Elite with Spiral-X cams.
