How did you get involved in archery?
I was 16 years old and went into the Quicks shop just to look at all the shiny new toys. One of the staff was starting a new archery club and told me to come along, this club was Fort Purbrook Bowmen and I was one of the first members. I took up the compound bow in my second year of shooting and worked hard for the next two years, making it into the Hampshire county team for the first time.
What are your shooting highlights?
I was part of a three man team which claimed bronze in the National Team Championships. I have also been shooting field from the age of 20. I joined the IFAA three years ago and have been able to shoot in the European and World field championships, the best result to date is 12th place in the European indoor field championships in Hungary.
