super summer

of sport I

t seems like it was all over too soon, but another summer of sport has now been and gone. What a Paralympics Team GB had! On the archery front, the British team topped the medal table, taking three golds, two silvers and a bronze in the Sambodromo – and Jess Stretton, Jo Frith and Vicky Jenkins achieved the first 1-2-3 for Great Britian in any event since 1996 in the women’s W1. John Walker was a double gold medalist in the men’s individual W1 and mixed team alongside Jo Frith, while Jodie Grinham and John Stubbs picked up open compound mixed team silver. It was a fantastic achievement and the whole team deserve hearty congratulations. We’ve got the full shoot report starting on page eight, as well as a collection of coaches’ experiences of what it’s like to train an athlete up for these games and stand behind them as the four years of hard work unfolds – and keep your eyes open for another Paralympic feature in an up-coming issue, too. On the subject of the summer Games, also we sit down with four-time Olympian Naomi Folkard this issue to talk about her incredible international career, which not only spans four games, but medals at world events in outdoor, indoor and field archery. It’s odd to think that after all the build-up and hype, the media attention, success stories and personal triumphs that the people we’ve been watching at the pinnacle of their sport over the summer will be returning to normal, perhaps after a couple of weeks off. The archers will be fletching arrows, plotting their groups, beginning the four-year cycle all over again. Until that time as they come around again, however, there’s plenty of archery action to keep you entertained all year round. World Archery and Archery GB have a great roster of events lined up, from the Combined Indoor Weekend in Telford to the Indoor World Cup, and later on the World Cup, World Championships and National Series – as well as the great video coverage available online we’ll be covering them all right here in Bow International. You can get a whole year’s worth delivered right to your door – and we’ve got a great subscriptions offer running at the moment, so you can save some cash too! Check it out on page 30. Speaking of time moving quickly, Christmas will be here before we know it. In this issue we’ve rounded up our pick of the best archery gifts to suit all pockets, so if you know a hard-to-buy-for archer (or you are one) be sure to give it a look.

Good shooting! Nicola

NEW Mathews target lineup Mathews has announced it will be introducing two new bows to its lineup for 2017 - the Halon X Comp and TRX. The Halon X Comp came about after feedback from archers indicated they’d like the Halon X in a longer design, and the Halon X Comp is a bow with a 37-inch axle-to-axle length and seven-inch brace height, which will be available in draw lengths from 26 to 32 inches. It will feature a new mini-crosscentric cam and a true centre nocking point for level nock travel. The TRX has been aimed at indoor archers, with a 40-inch axle-to-axle length and brace height options of seven and eight inches, the new mini-crosscentric cam and plenty of vibration damping.

Mussabini medal nod for Paralympic coaches

Michael Peart and Rikki Bingham, two of Archery GB’s Paralympic coaches, are in line for Mussabini medals at the UK Coaching Awards for the success of the archery team in Rio. The awards are named after Scipio Africanus Mussabini, who between the 1908 and 1928 Olympic Games coached people to 11 medals over different sports (you might know the name from the film Chariots of Fire, which is about the story of him coaching Harold Abrahams to a gold medal). All lead coaches of gold medalists from the 2016 Games are due to be recognised at the ceremony in London, and in a comment on the Archery GB website Mike said, “It is great to receive such an award and I’m really pleased Rikki is being recognised too. I’m so proud to be the head coach of such a great programme as it’s everyone’s hard work throughout Archery GB Performance that has delivered this success in Rio.”

Folkard elected as Field rep

Naomi Folkard has been elected as World Archery’s Field representative to the World Archery Athletes Committee, at a vote held during the 2016 World Field Championships in Dublin. Each athlete nominated serves a four-year term on the committee, representing the voice of athletes to the World Archery board. The reigning World Games champion has experience across indoor, outdoor and field internationals, and says her priorities are improving athlete facilities at major events and increasing anti-doping education.

Boost funding open

Olympic History

Archery GB has announced the launch of the latest round of its funding scheme for Boost Archery courses. Grants of £350 are available for successful applicants; clubs must be affiliated to Archery GB and the ontarget scheme, and will have 12 months to deliver the course (a scheme designed to help improvers get access to coaching to help them progress) once the funding has been received if the application is successful. The deadline for applications is 30 November, and you can download the application form from the Archery GB website at http://www.archerygb.org/boost.

Several archers have donated items to the Olympic Museum at the invitation of the IOC Culture and Heritage department at a ceremony in Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s silver medalist at the Youth Olympics Games and youngest ever qualifier for a World Cup Final Marcus D’Almeida donated an arrow, as did four-time Olympian and London 2012 silver medalist Takaharu Furukawa, while Rick Van der Ven of the Netherlands donated his competition shirt and five-time Olympian Evangelia Psarra of Greece donated both an arrow and her competition shirt.

doubles in size

Jess for SPOTY Archery GB would like the help of the archery community in putting Jess Stretton – the 16-year-old archer that won the women’s W1 category at the Paralympic Games – forward as a candidate for the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year Award. You can find the form through which you can nominate Jess on the Archery GB website at http://www.archerygb.org/news/7436.php#. WATxlsaMSfQ - but be quick, the deadline date for nominations is 11 November!

First clean sweep in 20 years Archery GB has announced it has responded to the incredible demand for places at its Combined Indoor Weekend by booking an entire extra hall at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. In previous years the senior Back2Back competition had run alongside the Junior National Indoor Championships in the same hall on the Saturday, and hosted the Senior National Indoor Championships on the Sunday, but this year the Junior National Indoor Championships and Back2Back will be held in separate halls – allowing for extra targets to be put out and more people to enter. This means there will be an additional 48 spaces per discipline in the Back2Back shoot, and around 680 spaces available over two sessions on the Sunday, as well as plenty more space for trade stands. This year the shoot will be held over Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 December. Entries to the shoots are available through Sport:80, and waiting lists will be in operation should they fill up.

Great Britain’s clean sweep of the women’s W1 podium was the first for Great Britain in any sport since 1996, when lawn bowls yielded a gold, silver and bronze.

Olympic archery a TV hit Archery broke a viewing record during the Olympics, with seven million people in Germany watching Lisa Unruh take on Chang Hyejin for the women’s title, and four million people in France tuning in to watch Jean-Charles Valladont and Ku Bonchan battle it out for men’s individual gold. World Archery is asking any other national federations with viewing figures for their country to get in touch.

Paralympic games

The Sambodromo was back in action for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games, where Great Britain topped the archery medal table with six medals in total

37 archers from 40 different countries competed at the Rio Paralympics from 10-17 September, providing no less drama than the Olympians a month earlier. There was a great atmosphere in the Sambodromo as the archers competed in nine different events. Three countries stood out across the eight days of shooting, with six medals for Great Britain, five for China and four for Iran across the recurve, compound, W1 and mixed team events that comprised the Paralympic archery competition. Korean archers came away with three medals to add to their summer success at the Olympics.

Paralympic Categories Paralympic archery competition is divided into two disability classes, as well as the bow divisions recurve and compound.

Ebrahim Ranjabarkivaj qualified first at the age of 46, setting a new Paralympic record of 637 for a 720 round. He was run close on his way to the quarter-finals after a close five-set match against British archer David Phillips. 10th-seed Piotr Sawicki was next up, who kept the match close after three sets at 3-3. Ranjabarkivaj closed out the match confidently with two ends of 28 to reach the semi finals. Local hope Luciano Rezende did well to reach the semi final, having qualified down in 27th place, 72 points behind his quarter final opponent, third seed Maik Szarszewski of Germany. The home crowd spurred him, and he closed out a 5-1 lead to complete a tense 6-4 victory in the Sambodromo. Second seed Hanreuchai Netsiri of Thailand comfortably progressed through his first three

rounds to face Rezende in the semi-final. The quality of shooting from Netsiri proved too much for the Brazilian as the Thai archer finished up with a 29 to take the match 6-0. The remaining semi-final spot was secured by Gholamreza Rahimi of Iran, progressing through his first three rounds 6-2, 6-0, 6-2 to set up a semi final against his fellow countryman Ebrahim Ranjabarkivaj. A thrilling match followed between the two Iranians with neither archer dropping below a 27 across the five sets. It was 4-4 going into the final end, but Rahimi finished up with a 29 to secure his place in the gold medal match. After the disappointment of the semi-final Ranjabarkivaj came back strongly in the bronze medal match to take the victory 7-1 against Luciano Rezende. The final saw Rahimi and Netsiri battle it out for the gold medal. A slow start from the

John Walker finished on a perfect 30 to take men’s W1 gold

Andre Shelby held his nerve to come from behind to beat Alberto Simonelli for men’s compound open gold Iranian saw Netsiri take the first set, but after that Rahimi was relentless, putting in a 30 in the second set to square up the match. He then took the next set 27-24 before a thrilling 30 from both archers tied the fourth set. A 27 from Rahimi was enough to secure the gold medal, taking the match 7-3.

Recurve Women open Current World Para-archery Champion Wu Chunyan set a new Paralympic record in her qualifying 720 with a score of 637, but she had close competition from Zahra Nemati, who ranked second with a score of 627. Nemati came to Rio hoping to retain her Paralympic title after becoming the first Iranian woman to win a gold medal at an Olympic or Paralympic games four years ago in London. The top four qualifiers eased comfortably through the first round, but the second round saw third-ranked Ye Jinyan of China lose 2-6 to Zehra Ozbey Torun of Turkey after shooting a miss in the fourth set. Fourth seed Milena Olszewska from Poland cruised through her

second round and quarter final matches 6-0 to face Wu Chunyan in the semi-finals. Zahra Nemati’s quarter final match was tied 4-4 after four sets against Italian Elisabetta Mijno, but she shot an impressive 10,10,10 in the fifth set to book her place in the semi final. She then eased past Lee Hwa Sook 6-0 to set up an exciting final against Wu Chunyan, who had beaten Milena Olszewska 7-1 in the other semi final. That set up an exciting bronze medal match between the archer from Poland and the Korean. The match was tied 5-5 after five sets, taking the match to a one-arrow shoot off for the bronze medal. An eight was enough to take bronze for Milena Olszewska as Lee Hwa Sook shot a seven. It was now the turn of the current World champion to take on the reigning Paralympic champion for the gold medal. Wu Chunyan had the better start, taking a 4-2 lead after three sets, but Zahra Nemati came back strong, sending five out of her last six arrows into the 10 to take the match 6-4 and crowning her a double Paralympic Games winner.

Compound men open The compound men division heralded the biggest upsets, with none of the top six qualifiers securing a medal, including London 2012 silver medallist Matt Stutzman, who fell to the Brazilian Andrey de Castro in the second round. Two points behind after four ends, the Brazilian crowd rallied behind De Castro who shot an impressive X,10,10 in the final end to win 142-141. 12th seed Andre Shelby was next to face De Castro in the quarter final after he beat fifth seed Nathan Macqueen in the second round. This time De Castro was leading by two points going into the final end, but his luck ran out as he could only manage a 25 and he slipped to a 135-136 defeat to Shelby. Top seed Bulent Korkmaz, who shot 687 in qualifying, had a tense one-arrow shootoff in the second round against fellow Turk Erdogan Aygan. Both shot nines but Korkmaz’s was closest to the centre, taking him into the quarter final to face Australian Jonathon Milne. Another close match followed, no

Great Britain locked out the podium in the Women’s W1 competition, only the second time a team has taken gold, silver and bronze in a Paralympic Archery event

Paralympic champion Zahra Nemati shot five 10s from six arrows to beat world champion Wu Chunyan in the women’s recurve open event more than a point separating them throughout the 15 arrows, but Milne edged it 139-138 to secure a place in the semi-final match against the American Andre Shelby. Shelby continued his winning run as he beat the Australian 139138 to guarantee at least a silver medal. The other side of the draw held similar upsets as second and third seeds Kevin Polish and Hadi Nori fell in the second round to 14th and 18th seeds Ai Xinliang and Michael Hall respectively. Ai Xinliang of China kept up momentum to beat sixth-seed Marcel Pavlik in the quarter final, earning him a semi-final against Italian Alberto Simonelli. The Chinese archer started strong, scoring 88 points in his first nine arrows, but Simonelli finished up with a perfect 60 from his last six arrows to take the match 146-144. In the bronze medal match, Jonathon Milne started strong and kept the advantage all the way through, shooting a perfect 30 under pressure in the last end to beat Ai Xinliang 145-142 to win a well-deserved bronze medal. The match for gold medal was close from start to finish. Alberto Simonelli took the early lead, two points ahead after the first two ends, but Andre Shelby fought back to win gold by a point, 144-143.

Compound women open 17 athletes contended the compound women open category, with Zhou Jiamin qualifying top with a score of 674. She eased through to the semi-finals after shooting 144 and 150 in her first two matches. Second seed Somayeh Abraspour of Iran was also looking strong until her semi-final match against Lin Yueshan of China, when she shot a miss in the third end, ending her gold medal hopes. In the bronze

medal match she faced Korean Kim Mi Soon who qualified 12th. The Iranian athlete took the early lead, but Kim Mi Soon came back strong, scoring 58 for her last six arrows to take the bronze medal 140-138. The final between the two Chinese archers was even closer, as Zhou Jiamin struggled to find the form she’d shown earlier in the event. She was tied with Lin Yueshan 138-138 after 15 arrows, taking the match to a shoot-off. Lin Yueshan could only manage a seven though, meaning the nine from Zhou Jiamin was enough to win gold.

Men W1 (rec/comp) In the men’s W1 category top seed Omer Asik from Turkey was beaten in the quarter final by 8th Seed Uwe Herter from Germany. Fifth Seed John Walker beat the German in the semi final 135-131 to guarantee at least a silver for the British archer. London 2012 silver medallist David Drahoninsky and Slovakian Peter Kinik made up the second semi-final, having qualified second and third, both scoring 638. Peter Kinik was leading by four points going into the final end, but could only manage 21 points from his last three arrows compared to 28 from his opponent. Peter Kinik took an early three-point lead over Uwe Herter in the bronze medal match, and a loose five from Herter let Kinik stretch the lead even further. He held onto it over the remaining three ends to take the bronze 133-125. David Drahoninsky of the Czech Republic met John Walker in the gold medal match. Nothing could separate them after four ends on 111 points each, but Walker finished with a perfect 30 in the final end to take the match and the gold medal 141-139.

Women W1 (rec/comp) The British trio of Jessica Stretton, Jo Frith and Vicky Jenkins came into the Paralympics with high hopes, and they didn’t disappoint. Jessica Stretton, the youngest archer at the Paralympic Games, qualified first with a score of 634. Strong shooting took the 16-year-old through the quarter-finals to face fellow Brit Vicky Jenkins in the semi-finals, who had shown great determination just to take part in the head to heads after spending the previous day unwell in hospital. Stretton opened with a 28 to take a two point lead in the first set and never looked back, closing out the match 141-131. Second seed Jo Frith was only three points behind Stretton in qualifying, and cruised through to the other semi-final to face Kim Ok Geum of South Korea. Frith secured a comfortable victory 131-123 to take her into the all-British gold medal match. In the bronze medal match Vicky Jenkins built up a lead of four points after four ends to lead 104-100 going into the final three arrows. The match tightened up after Jenkins shot a four on her second arrow, but Kim Ok Geum failed to capitalise on it, ending the match 125124 in favour of Jenkins, and securing the third podium spot for Great Britain. In the gold medal match Jessica Stretton dominated, and the win never looked in doubt as she took the victory 137-124, consigning Jo Frith to silver and completing a clean sweep of the medals for Great Britain, only the second time a country has locked out the podium in a Paralympic archery event.

an end of four arrows. For recurve archers it is first to five set points, while the compound and W1 categories shoot a 16-arrow match. In the recurve mixed team competition the Chinese team of Wu Chunyan and Zhao Lixue qualified second, and eased through the first round, quarter-finals and semi-finals without dropping a set against the Czech Republic, Thailand and Mongolian teams. The Italian team of Elsabetta Mijno and Roberto Airoldi qualified fourth, and beat Latvia and Brazil on their route to the semi-finals. They faced the top seeded Iranian team of Zahra Nemati and Ebrahim Ranjbarkivaj, who proved to be too strong for the Italians, taking the semifinal 6-0. That took them into a bronze medal match against a Mongolia team of BaatarJav Dambadondog and Oyun-Erdene Buyanjargal that they won 5-1, earning the Italians the bronze medal. The final was a close run match with the Iranian team started strong against the Chinese, going 3-1 up, but the Chinese fought back to 3-3 taking the match into a fourth and final set. The Iranians were a couple of points up until a six on the final arrow lost them the set and the match 5-3, handing the gold medal to the team from China.

last four arrows, meaning the 36 from Great Britain was just enough to take the match 144143. The other semi final saw China see off the Turkish challenge of Bulent Korkmaz and Handan Biroglu 149-139, setting up a China versus Great Britain final. The outcome of the bronze medal match was clear following the first end, after a miss from Turkey left them 10 points adrift of the Koreans who closed out the match 138-128. The gold medal match started off close, with both teams scoring 38 points from their first four arrows. Over the rest of the match however the Chinese archers proved too strong as they pulled out an eight-point lead over Grinham and Stubbs to win 151-143 and take the gold medal.

Mixed team W1 (rec/comp) The Great Britain team of John Walker and Jo Frith qualified top of the seven teams competing in the mixed team W1 event, taking

them straight to the quarter final stage. Second seed Korea, with Koo Dong Sub and Kim Ok Geum, easily saw off the lowest ranked team of China to face the USA in the semi-final. The USA team of Jeff Fabry and Lisa Coryell couldn’t keep up with the Koreans as the match finished 125-137. The Czech Republic team of David Drahoninsky and Sarka Musilova had a slow start against Great Britain in the other semi-final, putting in two fours in the first end. The match ended 144-128 to Great Britain, taking them into the final. The bronze medal match saw the Czech Republic face the USA. It was close throughout the first three sets, but the Czech team finished up with a 38 to take the match 137-129. Great Britain looked in control from start to finish in the gold medal match. The Korean team of Koo Dong Sub and Kim Ok Geum had to settle for silver as the match finished 139-129 in favour of the Brits John Walker and Jo Frith. 

Compound mixed team open In the compound mixed team open competition, Iran and China again qualified first and second, both teams scoring 1342. The Chinese team of Zhou Jiamin and AI Xinliang only put three arrows outside the 10 ring to beat Canada in their quarter final 155-143. Iran came up short against a Korean team of Lee Ouk Soo and individual bronze medallist Kim Mi Soon, losing 148-153. The Koreans came up against the British duo of Jodie Grinham and John Stubbs in the semi-final. The Brits had just won a tight quarter-final against Italy 150-149 and the semi-final was just as close. Korea was leading 109-108 after three ends, but could only manage 34 points from their
