Alex Wifler

1) What’s your favorite style of archery to shoot?

I like shooting recurve.

2) How did you get started in the sport?

I got started in archery because my cousins hunt and I thought their bows were really amazing. So I started shooting compound when I was 11 yrs old.

3) What archery accomplishment are you most proud of?

I am most proud of my last win at the Gator Cup.  I finished 1st against Canadian Olympian Crispin Duenus.

4) What’s your most embarrassing archery moment?

I haven’t really had any embarrassing moments. (yet…)

5) Any advice for your fellow archers?

My advice to fellow archers is shoot strong, have fun and know there is always another arrow.  The most important win lose or draw there is always ice cream at the end.
