In Bond`s style


Elegance and grace, strength and beauty: the IAU athletes took part in an art photo session for the promotion of the International Crossbow Shooting Union. The crossbow shooters had a difficult task to transform into the heroes of the legendary «Bond» movies. Nevertheless, for our champions this complicated mission turned out to be possible! Let`s watch how that worked out!

The «Bond» movies are a series of pictures about the secret agent «007», the legendary James Bond. More than one generation has grown with these adventure films, and all the exciting stories have become real classics of Hollywood.

The style of Bond became the main idea of the art photo session for the IAU athletes. The crossbow shooters tried their hands in roles of the characters from the James Bond films. So, the representatives of «Field» division became beautiful Bond girls:

Valentina Pereglin is a two-time world champion, European champion, winner of the World Cup final in crossbow shooting, the current holder of the title «The best crossbow shooter of the year».

Mihaela Oborovečki is the vice world champion and silver medalist of the World Cup final in crossbow shooting.

Violetta Samotaeva is a world champion in team, multiple winner and medalist of the Russian national championships, master of sports of Russia of international class in crossbow shooting.

Speaking about the character of a British intelligence secret agent, it was masterly played by Nazar Luginets, a crossbowman from Match division, who is the Honored master of sports of Russia in rifle shooting, an eleven-time world champion, a multiple European champion and multiple world record holder in crossbow shooting.

According to the organizers, the stylistic promotional photo shoots will become a tradition and more than once we will see our athletes not only in their usual sports uniforms but also in new completely unexpected looks!

And the results of this photo experiment are available in the "Gallery" section.
