Lopez is going to her third World Games – wants the prize for the mixed team. Sara Lopez, a Colombian compound woman, has had a good time at the World Games so far. 2013 was her first year, and she won bronze. In 2017, she won gold and the title of champion.  This year’s event starts on Friday in the southern U.S. city of Birmingham. The current World Archery Champion will also have a rare chance to win something different.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing how we can do in the mixed team event because we haven’t won anything in it at the World Games,” says Lopez, who just flew to the U.S. after winning three gold medals at the Bolivarian Games, including a gold in the mixed team event with partner Daniel Munoz.

Sara added, “I just want to do a good job for Danny.” This is what she hopes for in the USA. The pair is also the current world champions in compound doubles. “If I do a good job in individual that would be great, amazing, but I just want to focus on mixed team.”

“Just being there and making it to the third one is a huge win for me. Not everyone can say that they’ve been to three straight World Games. It’s proof that I did a great job with the last games.”

When asked if she feels more attention as the reigning champion, she articulated, “I don’t feel any pressure at all because this is my third one. My main goal is to keep my scores, have fun and see if that brings me a medal. I want to do my job and see what can happen. I’m really excited to be there and represent my country.”

Lopez’s opponents include Amanda Mlinaric, Tanja Gellenthien, Ella Gibson, Jyothi Surekha Vennam, Andrea Becerra, and Toja Ellison, who hasn’t been seen much internationally in 2022. Lopez needs to recover quickly from the Bolivarian Games because she got a heat stroke there. However, she thinks that the event helped her almost wholly get rid of her much-talked-about target panic in Guatemala in 2021.

Lopez’s Bronze and More

Lopez won bronze in 2013, but Erika Jones beat her in a tiebreak in the semifinals to win the whole thing. Then, a little more than a year later, Lopez beat Jones in the final of the 2014 Archery World Cup Final in Lausanne. This showed that the dominant compound woman had passed the torch to the next dominant compound woman. And the next World Games, in 2017, where Lopez won a gold medal on his own, would be very important. Lopez is ready for the tournament. But now that she’s made her mark on the sport she fell in love with. The Colombian archery legend isn’t so focused on winning. Instead, she’s trying to take in all the fantastic things she’s getting to do.
