of our city, as sports archery center in Soviet Ukraine (former USSR),
was expressed that in Lviv in a 1957 sports
archery again has revived. Just from this date and just from this city
began an ascention of the Soviet archery school to tops of world glory.
We began from zero, and as has told M.K. Huskivadze, one
of the founders of the Lviv coaches school:
“We knew only, that such a grasp (bow) and that such holdfast (bowstring)”.
But from the beginners
we gradually have turned to the leaders.
In the historical information on a FITA
Web-site is very shortly told, that in Lviv
of a FITA was organised, and all! As though Lviv,
by executing the historical role, has disappeared as a Atlantis. But
Lviv exists, and not only as city, but also
as the phenomenon in a sports archery. (We completely consciously separate
a recreational archery and sports archery.)
as the phenomenon in archery does not belong to any state, it belongs
to a history of a sports archery.
We want to tell and to show to the fans of
archery all over the world, role of Lviv
in development of our kind of sports. On duration of development of
sports archery and by quantity occupied, it is difficult to us to be
compared to other countries (USA, England, Holland etc.). But under
the contribution to development of the theory of archery, in technology
of preparation of the high quality athletes, in creation of a reference
technique of a shot, preparation of the coaches' staff - we can compete
