Mike Schloesser took his first ever individual European Championship title, defeating reigning champion Yakup Yildiz in the men’s compound finals in Munich, Germany this weekend. With the win, Schloesser makes history by becoming the first World Archery Grand Slam title holder ever. Schloesser’s achievement comes after having taken the World Championship, World Cup Final, World Indoor Series, and Continental Outdoor titles. Commenting on his historic victory in Munich, Schloesser stated, "I’m very satisfied, I’m really happy and I worked really hard for it. I’m just really stoked because this is something that’s been on my list.”
The European Champion win also means Schloesser currently holds six premiere titles, the others being, the World Cup Final, World Indoor, World Field, European Games and European Indoor championships.
Mike Schloesser chose the Easton X10 for his history-making performance—the same arrow that has won more world and Olympic titles than any other arrow shaft in history. Schloesser is currently preparing to compete in The World Games in Birmingham, Alabama in July.
