World Archery have released a new Rule Book which came into effect from 18th July.
The main change is to Book 3. World Archery have reinstated equipment failures and minor medical emergencies, except for at World Ranking Events and Multi Sport Events. World Ranking Events are NOT the same as World Record Status Events. World Ranking Events (WRE) are things like World Cups and Continental Championships. Multi Sport events are things like the Olympics and the European Games.
So at events in the UK equipment failures and minor medical emergencies are now allowed again. But please note that they are still NOT allowed during match play.
