Casey Kaufhold, the world’s top-ranked women’s archer, is on a mission to win gold at the Paris Olympics. The 20-year-old Lancaster, Pennsylvania native has been making waves in the archery world since she was 15, impressing even seasoned athletes like Brady Ellison, a former world No. 1 men’s archer. Ellison recognized Kaufhold’s talent early on, and they teamed up to win gold at the Pan-American Games in 2019.

Kaufhold’s rise to the top has been swift and decisive. She became the first American woman to reach No. 1 in the Sanlida World Archery rankings last year, a feat she achieved at just 19 years old.

Her success is a testament to her hard work and dedication, as well as the support of her parents, Rob and Carole Kaufhold, who founded Lancaster Archery Supply and provide her with top-notch facilities and equipment.

Kaufhold’s sights are set on becoming the first American to win Olympic gold in archery since 1996, and she’s well on her way.

She’s already won numerous titles, including the Olympic test event in Paris, and has consistently finished in the top four at World Cup events. With her confidence and skills at an all-time high, Kaufhold is ready to take on the world in Paris.
