Crispin Duenas

While watching the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, Crispin Duenas thought to himself that one day he would march in just like the athletes he saw on TV. He did so twice, at Beijing 2008 and London 2012. Duenas has also competed at two Pan American Games, winning team silver at Rio 2007 before capturing individual silver at Guadalajara 2011. Duenas had a major breakthrough at the 2013 World Archery Championships when he won bronze for Canada’s first world medal in the individual recurve event in 42 years. His only loss came in the semifinal to the reigning Olympic champion. Duenas was also part of the Canadian team that finished seventh for the country’s best worlds result since 1971. Duenas has a career-high world ranking of fifth.
