  Rob Rusnov defeated David Dalziel in a head-to-head shootout this past July to earn a berth in the Sydney Olympics. The two top archers in Canada were forced to go to the shootout after both met the qualifying standard set by the Canadian Olympic Association. Canada could only send one archer to Sydney.  

Rusnov, a second-year engineering student at Ryerson Polytechnic University, has been ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in Canada since 1992. He won two gold and three bronze medals at the 1995 Pan American Games and finished 38th at the '96 Olympics in Atlanta. Canada's top finish in Olympic archery was a fifth by Lucille Lemay Jackson at the 1976 Games.
