Two British archers - Naomi Folkard and Patrick Huston - made it though to the final stages on the Indoor Archery World Cup In Las Vegas last night - and both put up a terrific fight.
Triple Olympian Naomi beat seventh seed Randi Degn of Denmark 6-0 but her progress to the semi final was blocked by eventual bronze medallist Sim Yeji. Both archers battled hard but the Korean eventually emerged as the 7-3 victor.
Fourth seed Patrick went head to head with Ivan Gonzales for a place in the recurve quarter finals and it was so close. The advantage swung back and forth but, eventually, the Mexican edged it to claim a 6-4 win.
But the action continues at the World Archery Festival - and the large British contingent has been busy. After the second day, Naomi is ranked eighth and Patrick lies joint 13th in their recurve championship categories. Edward McDermott is at 64 and Thomas Fewz lies 69th, while Leslie Day and Malcolm Dukes are at 74 and 75 respectively.
Naomi Jones is currently ranked 25th in the women's championship compound category, just ahead of Nichola Simpson (35), Andrea Gales (37) and Victoria Barby (80). Chris White is 125th in the men's competition with Ryan Jeavons at 257.
And British archers are putting up quite a performance in the recurve flights competition too. Ashe Morgan currently lies third with Sean Evans sixth, Stuart Barby in tenth and Mark Nesbitt 11th. Alex Smith is now ranked 18th with Bob Lowe at 28 and Gilbert Jamieson at 46 ahead of Verity Gray, Pete James, Susan Agnew and Dwight Hagley.
Jordan Mitchell leads the Brit-pack in the compound unlimited flight category at 29th, followed by Robert Hall (41), Alex Bridgman (86), Alistair Whittingham (89), Carl Richards, Thomas Hutchins, Hannah Brown, Christopher Horan, Kirsty Robb, Alan Convery, Kevin Cassidy, Karen Jamieson, Charlie Cassidy and Patricia Hotchkiss.
