Who Broke 2 World Archery Records in 2021?
Ever heard of Tim Gillingham? He’s the pro archer who just concluded a remarkable and record-setting 2021 competitive season. Over the course of the year, Gillingham set two new world records, capping an impressive record of victories throughout the season.
On April 11 at the USAT Arizona Cup, Gillingham broke the Men’s Master Compound Match record with a 150 7X. One week later at the USA Archery Target Nationals, he broke another world record in the Men’s Master Compound 2×72 50M total round score with a score of 1413. During the same match and category, Gillingham also broke the national record with his score of 710/720.
What’s Gillingham’s advice for would-be record-setters? “I shoot a command style release, meaning it is not a surprise when I shoot the shot. I feel like it gives me more control in various conditions and fits how I aim better. Although mentally it is not for everyone, I personally believe a surprise release is not either. We all have different aiming abilities and the subconscious can be harnessed no matter how we fire the release. I do, however, work with the Hamskea Break-Through release to eliminate anticipation and create a strong dynamic shot.”
“I was fortunate to have several strong finishes this season, and to break two world records in the process was an incredible feeling,” Gillingham said. “It takes a lot of dedication to achieve those milestones, and I couldn’t do it without the Gold Tip and Bee Stinger equipment I depend on at every competition.”
Gillingham, who is sponsored by Gold Tip and Beestinger plan to recognize Gillingham for his record-setting year at the upcoming Archery Trade Association (ATA) Show, which is open to the public and set to take place January 7-9 in Louisville, Kentucky. On Saturday, January 8th both brands will host a small reception (Booth #2347) at 10 a.m.
