How did you get involved in archery?
My dad was on the British Field Team so I really wanted to start archery and reach the level he did and more. My dad coached me from the start and helped get the balance between improving and enjoying it, I made the GB Junior squad at the end of 2010 and shot my first international in 2012. Lloyd Brown and Songi Woo worked with my dad and I to help me improve from then on. The ambition to win a World Field Championships from day 1 has motivated me to train hard and keep improving.
What are your shooting highlights?
I was reserve for the Rio Olympics, my senior World Ranking is 32 and I competed at the Youth Olympics. I’ve won medals internationally at junior level in field, target and indoors as well as winning a stage of the indoor world cup in 2016 and making the indoor world cup finals in 2017 and 2018.
