Britain’s Lucy Mason has struck compound gold with a superb performance at the Berlin Open.

The fourth seed saw off Germans Tanja Nordmeyer-Kuhne 145-136 and Cicek Akcakaya 146-142 before coming up against British fifth seed Stephanie Clason. She had defeated Poland’s Katarzyna Szalanska 142-138 and German Sandra Albrecht 144-140 but had no answer for on form Lucy who powered to a 143-137 win then beat top seed Runa Grydeland of Norway 146-145.

That put her into a gold medal showdown with Sweden’s Anneli Andersson, who had earlier ended second seed Susan Corless’s hopes. But Lucy was not going to be denied and swept to a 144-140 victory.

Another British entrant, Katharina Baier, qualified in ninth spot. She was beaten in a shoot-off by Germany’s Heike Bumke. And compounder Simon Scott was beaten 147-143 by the top men’s seed and eventual gold medallist, Mads Haugseth of Norway.

Recurver Johanna Meyer was beaten 7-1 by Germany’s Lea Marie Schweer in the first round of eliminations. Among the other British entries were recurvers Stuart Barby, Benjamin Arenas and compounders Jacek Pedziwiatr and Jose Goncalves.
