European Archery Report

Kathryn Morton was selected by Archery GB to represent Great Britain at the European Field Archery Championships in Slovenia, early October 2019. The competition was spread across a full week, composed of two days of qualification followed by pool matches and a series of finals. This left four archers fighting for the three possible medal positions. Having finished fourth in qualification, Kathryn got a bye into the quarter-final which she won against her Romanian opponent, 65-59. Unfortunately, in her semi-final, Kathryn was drawn against the top seeded archer from Sweden and lost the match by just 6 points. Her final match (to decide 3rd and 4th places in the category) was against a competitor from Iceland which Kathryn won 46-41 to bring home the Bronze medal.
