  • Where data is scarce, more than 3 years may be used.

* The score for Junior Men Recurve in 2018 was well below previous years’ averages. Therefore the Benchmark and Qualifying scores for 2020 are based on the average scores of the remaining 3 years from 2016-2019

** The scores for Junior Women Recurve in 2016 & 2018 were more than 40 points lower than the next lowest annual score, therefore the average scores of the remaining 3 years from 2015-2019 were used

*** The score for Master Women Compound in 2018 was well below previous years’ averages. Therefore the Benchmark and Qualifying scores for 2020 are based on the average scores of the remaining 3 years from 2016-2019
