Gatland made some serious changes to his starting line-up for the second Test against New Zealand in Wellington.

Brady Ellison sets a new World Record for the Indoor games in Marrakesh

The 28 year old professional American archer scored 598 out of 600 points and broke the world record set in 2001 for the indoor competition. Ellison tied the record more times in the past, but never got to the point to conquer it. And now, after 15 years, he was the one to get it. This great achievement comes for Brady a month after he had surgery to reconstruct his kneecap. His knee condition made his performance more challenging, but didn’t stop him from scoring the highest number of points in the 2016/17 Indoor Archery World Cup in Marrakesh, Morocco, and setting the new world record. His competitor, Michele Frangilli who scored 597 points, congratulated Brady for his success. Beside the fact that he made a new world record, Ellison was under the spotlight in Marrakesh also for looking very much like Leonardo DiCaprio. The second best archer in the […]
