The Athletes’ Oath will be spoken by an athlete of the host nation (chosen by the Organising Committee) first in the native language of the host country (for the benefit of local spectators and/or media) and then repeated in English (if possible by the same athlete).
In the name of all athletes I promise that we shall take part in these Championships respecting and complying with the rules which govern them, committing ourselves not to use banned substances; in the true spirit of sportsmanship, for the glory of archery and the honour of our countries.
The Officials’ Oath will be spoken by the Chairman of the Tournament Judges Commission or his/her representative. It will be taken in English only, as this has been now recognised as the judges' working language.
In the name of all judges and officials, I promise that we shall officiate in these Championships with complete impartiality, applying the rules which govern them. We shall endeavour to encourage the true spirit of sportsmanship through a professional approach to our responsibilities and the fairness of our decisions and actions.
Both the athlete and the judge will hold a corner of the World Archery flag whilst speaking.
