Dror dominated the recurve men’s under-21 event from start to finish.
The 18-year-old seeded top with a 584-point qualifying round, which would have put him through the senior cut, and shot just one set (in 17) of less than 29 points in matchplay.
His final against Croatian archer Leo Sulik was done quickly – a straight-set victory opened and capped with perfect 30s.
“I just kept in my mind that I should shoot fast and not overthink things,” said Dror. “It went well.”
It’s a promising sign for Israel, a team that invested in a new head coach – British Olympian Richard Priestman – last season, with a view to sending an archer to a second consecutive Olympics.
Competition at the Sud de France Archery Tournament concludes this afternoon with the event’s senior finals.
