Stutzman of the United States won his first event at the World Championships after beating Russia’s Alexandr Gombozhapov 142-137 in the men’s compound open final.

Despite leading for the whole match, Stutzman was never in a comfortable position.

He led 28-25 in the first end, 56-54 in the second, and then 85-81 in the third.

At this point, it seemed Stutzman could have created an unassailable lead in the fourth end, but Gombozhapov produced two perfect arrows to narrow the Paralympic silver medallist's control to just two points.

With the scores set at 122-110 in Stutzman’s favour, he produced a flawless end to win the gold medal.

In the women’s compound open, Russian Archery Federation’s Andrievskaia overcame Italy’s Maria Andrea Virgilio 143-140.

The four-times World Championships medallist recovered from 29-27 down in the first end to be 114-112 up heading into the final end.

After producing a score of 29, Andrievskaia secured her first gold medal at the competition.

In the compound men open final, Iran defeated Australia 145-143 to become this year’s champion whilst Slovakia beat France 150-141 to take bronze.

The women's event saw Turkey keep their composure to win 150-149 against Andrievskaia’s Russian Archery Federation.

After being tied 148-148 at the end of the match, Iran’s women succeeded 20-19 in a shoot-off against Britain to secure the bronze medal.

The compound mixed team medal matches witnessed Andrievskaia and Shigaev triumph 150-148 for the Russian Archery Federation against India to become the champions while Britain beat France 144-143 in a tense affair to take home bronze.
