A great few days for Brad!


Great Britain’s youth teams netted one gold and two silver medals at the European Youth Cup in Moscow yesterday – adding to the three team honours already secured by the team!

Moscow medal haul grows!

Bradley Denny of Archers of Raunds, along with Joe Ground and Jack Masefield powered through shoot-offs with both Italy and Russia to land a cadet recurve gold medal clash with Germany – and they took the honours in fine style, winning 6-2.


Also, a few days ago it was announced that Brad, along with Bryony Pitman have been selected by the British Olympic Association to represent Great Britain at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing.

The pair, both 17, will be among 33 British athletes competing across 14 sports for the Games, which run from 16 to 28 August.

Youth Olympics call-up for Bradley and Bryony

Bradley and Bryony secured their places during the World Youth Archery Championships in Wuxi last year. But what could it mean for them? As well as finding out more about the Chinese culture, the Olympic Movement and its values, they will be mixing with around 3,600 athletes from 200 nations.


Bradley said: “Nanjing is going to be fantastic experience for me and I’m so proud to have been selected to represent Team GB at the Youth Olympic Games. It’s a big multi-sport event, which is rare for archery, so it’s a chance to meet and learn from so many other athletes. Hopefully it can be a stepping-stone for my dream to, one day, compete at the Olympics.”
