Brady Ellison rapidly climbed the Archery ranks following the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
He won gold in the 2010 FITA World Cup, and is the world’s only archer to ever win three consecutive world cup titles, making him one of the premier recurve contenders heading into this summer’s Olympic games.
Recurve archery derives its name from the curved tips at either end of the bow, which increases the speed of the bow, and the smoothness of the release. Recurve bows are the only style allowed in the Olympics.
Raised in a family of hunters in Glendale Arizona, Ellison began bow hunting at the age of seven on his grandfather’s ranch. He is now ranked number one in the world and is taking aim at Gold in London this summer.
