2020 Metropolitan Results


With the COVID-19 pandemic turning the world upside down this year, so to were archery competitions across NSW. Once cases started to drop and restrictions eased, we were thrilled to able to host competitions again, even if only remotely.

Our 2020 Metropolitan Championships, were not as we planned but every bit as successful as previous years. The event was hosted remotely over the weekend of 29-30 August and was the first competition for many archers after months of forced hiatus.

Some notes

These results differ to the results in Archers Diary, why is this the case?

Entrant’s status were checked in Archers Diary and were found a number of people entered into the incorrect division. Divisions were based on current Classifications/Ratings listed in Archers Diary.

It was identified that a number people had Classifications/Ratings that was greater than the division they entered. Subsequently their Division has been changed.

Under the long standing Metropolitan Championship rules the results in Archers Diary are not the final results. The Metropolitan is a unique event as such the results cannot be managed in Archers Dairy and have to be determined manually, see the attached results.

Following the direction of the ASNSW COM the following rule applies. A person in a division having shot a score in their division where the score would allow them to also place in a higher division, they would be legible for medals in both divisions.

Yes, this could mean a person in Div. 3 who shoot a score that would also obtain a medal place in Div. 2 and maybe Div.1 would win medals in each division. This has happened many times in the past.

While COVID-19 restrictions are easing across NSW, our archery clubs are not back to normal just yet. Please contact the clubs for more information on their restrictions.
