Both Jon Bull and Bradley Denny have won team medals for Great Britain at the European Outdoor Youth Championships in Ljubljana, Slovenia!
The GB Recurve cadets team of Brad, Joe Ground and Jack Masefield, beat Turkey in the gold medal match with a 5-3 victory. Having beaten Czech Republic 6-0, Russia 6-2 and the Netherlands 6-2 along the way.
The Compound junior team of Jon Bull, Jake Burn and Jordan Mitchell, beat the Italian team in the quarter final 230-223 and then Russia 227-222 in the semi’s to reach the gold medal final. The Swedish team were just a little to strong for them in the end, so it was Silver for them on the day.
Jon Bull had a great tournament overall, just missing out on an individual medal finishing in fourth place losing 144-135 to Christos Aerikos of Greece in the bronze medal match.
This is another very relaxed local shoot, ideal for all levels. If the clubs could mention this shoot to their newer members as a possible nice first or early tournament for them, that would be appreciated.
