However, every one of these archers has demonstrated their determination to qualify for the team and their commitment in these uncertain times is admirable.

“It’s a strong team with a great deal of experience and skill. Four archers will be competing for GB and NI for the first time this year, and we are also looking forward to the introduction of the mixed team round at these championships.”
