Three local archers were placed in the top 40 at the 3rd Singapore Archery Open 2019.

The Brunei team comprised Mohammad Shah Rezza bin Nassarudin, who competed in 50m compound event, while Khairul Ariffin bin Haji Baha and Muhamad Azry Masria Al-Asri bin Haji Masri took part in the 70m recurve event.

They competed against 200 other archers from countries including the Philippines, Malaysia, Australia and Russia.

Team captain Muhammad Shah Reza hopes their participation will inspire more local archers to represent Brunei in the international stage.

He said the Singapore meet was a good exposure for the Brunei team, while adding that there is room for improvement.
