Brady Ellison at the top of his GAME!

Hi Guys,

We are on our final leg of the 2011 season. Brady is having a great year. He started off winning the individual gold in Porec Croatia, he also lead the mens team to a gold medal. In the mixed team event they won silver. The next stop was Antalya Turkey. Brady won another individual gold and a bronze in the team event. The World Championship were next in Torino Italy. After the ranking round Brady was tied for first with a Korean archer. Brady shot well through out his elimination matches all the way to the semi finals. In the semi finals Brady ended up tied with a Korean shooter and they went into a shootoff. Both archers shot 10 but the Korean archers arrow was 2mm closer to the center giving him the win. Brady went into the Bronze medal match against the number one ranked archer in the world. He made a statement from the first arrow and won the Bronze. World Cup 3 was on US soil in Ogden Utah. Brady was on a mission to perform well. He fed off the home crowd and won 3 gold medals. We just returned from Shanghai China the fourth stop on the World Cup Series. Brady shot well but was nocked out in the 1/16th round. He went on to win a gold in the mixed team and team event. Next week we leave for the World Cup final in Istanbul Turkey then we go straight to US Olympic trials then to the Olympic Test event and the Pan Am games. Brady also won all the USA Archery National titles this year, Indoor Fields and Outdoor. He won all USAT events except for one, which he finished second in. He is ranked number 1 in the World and should hold that ranking thru the beginning of 2012. He is also the USA's number 1 ranked archer. We have a very busy 6 weeks of travel ahead but I know Brady's strong mental game will help him finish the year strong. Please tell Lanny and Troy we will see them at trials.

Thank You,
