Schloesser clinched a 147-144 victory over the American to take the title.

“It feels really good - I’m super happy, I came here with really good confidence and when eventually it shows out there, it’s an awesome feeling,” said Schloesser, who won the event back in 2016.

“I want to thank everyone who has helped me get here.

“I had some troubles last year, personal and in archery, and I think that a lot of people helped me to get here, so I want to thank them all.”
