Sjef van den Berg saw off American Zach Garrett 7-3 to win the men's recurve title at the Archery World Cup in Shanghai today.

The Dutchman, the European Games champion in Baku last year, had to wait until the second end to find the ten ring for the first time but grew into the contest and reeled off six maximums in a row at one stage.

Garrett, who was competing in his second World Cup final in a row, remained in contention with the match described as a "battle of who could believe in their own ability the longest".

"I just wanted to get the job done,” said twenty-one-year-old van den Berg.

 “It’s so important to get the last ones in.

"It’s not over until the fat lady sings, right?”

Garrett, who is also 21, added: "Obviously I didn’t shoot the way I wanted to, but it happens.

"I’m doing my best to figure it out.

"Next time will be better.

"It’s just the way it happens."
