Mackenzie Brown and Brady Ellison compete in the mixed team event at the Archery World Cup on June 25, 2017 in Salt Lake City.


Olympians Mackenzie Brown and Brady Ellison earned a mixed team bronze medal on Sunday in the fourth stage of the Hyundai Archery World Cup in Berlin.

The duo faced a pair from Turkey in the bronze medal match, and after tying the first of four sets and earning one set point, the U.S. followed up with three 10s and one eight for an almost-perfect 38 in the second set to take a 3-1 lead.

Again the U.S. and Turkey tied in the third set, but Brown and Ellison earned the last two set points of the match in the fourth to take a 6-2 victory.

Brown, 22, represented the U.S. at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and Ellison, 28, is a three-time Olympian who won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympics in London.

In June, the duo also took a bronze medal at the Archery World Cup in Salt Lake City.

The mixed team event was first contested at the 2011 World Archery Championships and, after being tested at the last two Youth Olympic Games, will be added to the Olympic program beginning in 2020 in Tokyo.

Brown and Ellison won the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Archery last summer to earn their spots in Rio.
