LottoStar sponsors R25 000 towards Archery World Champions!
The sponsorship is awarded to a very deserving and determined player of Archery, Marjone Mulholland. She will be attending the International Bowhunting Organisation's World Championship event at Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia in the USA.
The event will take place from 9 - 11 August 2018 and Marjone will be competing in the Female Bowhunter Release - the most advanced class for females shooting a hunting setup.
Marjone is very proud to be representing South Africa at this event and is looking forward to it very much. Although it's the second time she will be attending (she previously attended in 2013), it is the first time archers or bowman in South Africa have been awarded formal recognition for this discipline.
Marjone, takes the sport very seriously and has played regularly and competitively for 9 years, having started after a friend convinced her to shoot her bow. She has a deep love and passion for archery which she highly recommends to both young and old, and has learnt many life lessons through it.
Marjone is a real pro and has been awarded Protea colours in all three disciplines, namely, 3D Archery, Field Archery and Indoor Archery.

LottoStar is proud to sponsor Marjone Mulholland and our best wishes accompany her for this world event!
Update on progress: 26 July 2018
LottoStar received the following email update from Marjone Mulholland:
"I have been involved in competitive archery for 9 years now. It all started when a friend convinced me to shoot her bow. I was hooked! Since then, I have loved every minute of it and compete every chance I get. I compete most regularly in three disciplines namely 3D Archery, Field Archery and Indoor Archery. I have been awarded Protea Colours in all three these disciplines. I have learned many life lessons through archery and would recommend it to anyone, young or old. The equipment is set up for each individual, so anyone can do it.
The event that I will be attending in August is the IBO (International Bowhunting Organisation) World Championships. It takes place 9-11 August at Snowshoe Mountain, West Virginia, USA. I will compete in Female Bowhunter Release, which is the most advanced class for females shooting a hunting setup, as I do. This will be the second time that I attend this event. However, it is the first time that archers from South Africa have been awarded formal recognition for this discipline. We are all very proud and looking forward to it very much.
I would also like to express my gratitude to LottoStar again for the sponsorship that made this trip possible."

The image below shows Marjone Mulholland holding her well-deserved medal. Congratulations Marjone, you have made everyone proud!
Marjone Mulholland has this to say, "Thank you for your kind words. The recent IFAA World Field Archery Championships was a great experience. Over 400 archers from 24 countries visited Potchefstroom, South Africa to compete in this event. It was very hot and there was little shade, so endurance definitely played a role. I had trained hard and I was lucky enough to take gold in the Adult Female Bowhunter Unlimited class. For a day by day, you are welcome to have a look at my facebook page Marjone: Archery Adventures."
