Sports data solutions provider FeedConstruct has announced the launch of two brand-new sports varieties: Compound Archery and Pistol H2H Shooting.
Compound Archery uses a pulley and cable lever system to create a more efficient bow, resulting in faster and more accurate shots. This sport was first incorporated into the World Archery Championship programme in the late 20th century and has since "captured the attention of archers around the world," notes FeedConstruct.
Matches are decided on the cumulative score, with the aim of achieving the highest number of points at the end of the regulation number of arrows. Each individual match lasts for 15 arrows, with 5 sets and 3 shots per set.
Pistol H2H Shooting uses a single-loaded pistol in 4.5-millimetre calibre. The air pistol events were first introduced on the World Championship level in 1970 and on the Olympic programme in 1988.
In Pistol H2H Shooting, score zones are divided into tenths, allowing for a maximum score of 10.9 instead of the traditional 10 in individual pistol shooting. "This makes for an even more intense and competitive game, perfect for both athletes and spectators alike," FeedConstruct said.
"With the launch of Compound Archery and Pistol H2H Shooting, FeedConstruct is once again pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of sports. Stay tuned for more exciting developments from FeedConstruct in the future," the company stated, adding these varieties will "revolutionize the way we think about archery and shooting."
