BEIJING, China — Lemoore archer Jeff Fabry did it again.

Fabry, the London 2012 Paralympic champion, took home the gold at the World Archery Para Championships on Sept. 16.

Fabry started off the W1 men’s individual gold final by shooting a 28, while opponent Omer Asik of Turkey fired a 27. Fabry built some extra cushion in the second end and opened a 53-50 lead.

Asik fired back in the third end and tied the score 79-79, before taking the lead in the fourth end, 105-104, after Fabry shot a 25 in the fourth.

But Fabry would not be outdone and finished with a 28 on the final end to squeeze out a 132-131 win and claim the title.
