Huge congratulations to Susan Corless of Northampton AC, for picking up a team silver medal at the Berlin stage of the Archery World Cup, alongside team mates Sarah Moon and Ella Gibson.
The Great Britain Ladies Compound team made it all the way to the gold medal match, where they narrowly missed out to a very on form Turkish team.
This was only Susan’s second World Cup appearance, and the result has moved Susan up in the World Archery rankings by 78 places to 65th. And helped to moved the Great Britain Ladies Compound team up from 8th to 5th.
Congratulations also to long time county archer James Mason, for winning the mixed team gold medal alongside Ella Gibson. An excellent display in the final against Slovenia ended a long seven year wait for a GB gold medal at a World Cup event.
NCAS would like to congratulate former long time county archer James Mason for what’s been a fantastic year.
In August James was part of the three man Great Britain Men’s Compound Team, along with Neil Bridgewater, and Adam Ravenscroft, who won the gold medal at the European Archery Championships in Legnica, Poland. They came through a dramatic final against France to win by a single point. James shot extremely well throughout the finals, as many watched it all unfold live on the BBC Sport website.
On top of that, in September James also won his first Archery GB National Tour Grand Final at Lilleshall. Beating two-time winner Chris White in the Semi’s to face another two-time winner, GB team mate and fellow European gold medalist, Neil Bridgewater in the final. James took the title with a 147-144 win.
