Evesham Editorial 1st Jul, 2022   0

EVESHAM Archery Club member Jamie Harris has been selected to represent Great Britain at the European Para-Archery Championships which take place in Rome, Italy in August.

Harris, who is part of a 10-strong squad, recently won bronze in Dubai in the Compound Open Mixed Team event at the World Para-Archery Championships with fellow Brit and Paralympic champion Jessica Stretton.

The same team will also attend the Para-Archery World Ranking Tournament and European Cup in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic which starts tomorrow.

Harris will compete in the Compound Open Men event.




Director of Performance, Tom Duggan said: “This year has been a different one for the para programme having had the Worlds in Dubai in February and then such a long gap between competitions in Nove Mesto and the Euros.

“Our plans for the Worlds were disrupted by Covid meaning some athletes and staff weren’t able to travel, so we are looking forward to being at full strength for these competitions.”


The European Championships take place from Tuesday, August 2 to Monday, August 8.
