What got you into shooting

Having done an archery session on holiday in Egypt I found I really enjoyed it. I kept going about having a bow to shoot with in the garden, my parents weren’t too keen with that so I was given an Archery GB  beginners course for Christmas at a local club. Having completed the beginners course in January I joined the club (Bowmen Of Burleigh) in April 2018. I took part in several competitions over the 2018 summer and picked up individual and team medals at all of them.

What are you goals and ambitions?

  • Obtaining my Junior Master Bowman rating in 2020
  • To continue to grow with my coaching and after NTDP / ATC 2019-2020 I hope to be invited for profiling at Lilleshall again.
  • Shooting my first 500 Portsmouth over the winter
  • Putting my coaching in to practice and continually improving my technique and building my strength.
  • Shoot on the Orangery level in a final at YouthFest.
  • Continue to enjoy the sport

What was your best archery achievement?

  • Shooting a 6 gold end at my first major outdoor competition
  • Achieving Bowman rating in my first full year
  • Shooting 50m for the first time on a Thursday then travelling to Lilleshall for profiling and YouthFest at the weekend going on to help my team win bronze at the mixed team cub match
  • Being invited to Profiling with Archery GB at Lilleshall in my first full year of shooting
  • Being sponsored with Aim4Sport after 18 months of starting Archery

Do you do anything outside of Archery?

What do you enjoy the most about being a sportsperson?

Being focused and driven I like to see the positive results of the effort myself and my coach have put in.

Being a sportsperson helps me build my resilience and enables me to take learnings from all the events I do.

It helps me keep myt body and mind in a good condition.

What is your current training program (Arrows a day, gym sessions etc etc.)

I shoot as much as I can, over thes ummer this was Monday/Tuesday and Thursday, plus completions most weekends, I averaged around 500 arrows a week with the highest being just over 1000.

In the winter the club shooting is on a Sunday, however I shoot in to a boss in the garage 3-4 times a week aiming for 400-500 a week

I have PE at school 3 hrs a week, dancing 1hr a week, netball at least 1-2hrs a week plus my strength and conditioning which I do at my local gym
