World Championship 2015: Josefine de Roepstorff shoots normally in the Longbow Division. However, this year, in order for Denmark to field a women’s team, Josefine will be shooting in the Instinctive Bow Division at the World Champonships in Italy.

More:

Josefine has had a lifelong passion for archery. For several years, studies and recovery from a traffic accident put her practice on standby, but in 2008 she seriously set to work on practising the longbow. Josefine is deeply committed to her sport. Concurrent with her archery practice, Josefine has completed World Archery Denmark’s coach course Trin I and has instructed children, adults, and school classes in archery, given talks on her experience as an elite archer, and been active in her club and association.

“As an archer, I find it exciting and challenging continuously to experiment with my technique in order to improve my performance. First and foremost, archery requires a strong and disciplined practice regime, but this part of the training also appeals to me. It is an exercise in composure and mindfulness and counterbalances our busy modern lives.

From the start, my primary passions have been 3D archery and non-sight archery. 3D archery offers variation and endless challenge of estimating distance. Outdoors, it offers wonderful nature experiences, and it is a pleasant activity to spend time with others across age, gender, and types of bows.”

After seven years of shooting the longbow, in the summer of 2015, Josefine started shooting recurve in the Women Instinctive division.

In 2012 and as part of the first Danish national 3D women’s team, she participated in the European 3D Championship in Croatia and ended on a fourth place. At the World 3D Championship in Italy in 2013, Josefine also ended fourth. In 2014 at the European 3D Archery Championships in Estonia, Josefine ended on a tenth place
