Sponsoring Clive At The World Archery Para Championships!

We sponsored Clive Jones who flew out to the Czech Republic to take part in the World Archery Para Championships which took place 17th to 23rd of July 2023. We donated £700 for this amazing event, and we also designed a sponsored polo shirt for Clive to model at the event!

The update and some kind words from Clive – “To all my friends, Family and Supporters.
Now I have returned from the Czech Republic, I Just thought I’d give a

brief update of how the World Para Championships went for me.

Firstly, it was lovely to meet up with my other international archers from around the globe, to meet old friends and to make new ones. It was great to be with them once again.
The qualification round took place and, in all honesty, the first session in the morning couldn’t have gone any worse. I struggled with everything from the heat, the Humidity and of course my thoughts. I eventually got back on track and shot well, finishing the round with a International personal best.

It was then into the knockout/Head-to-Head round. I won the first match 7-1 and went through to the Quarter Finals. I then came up against Matteo, a great archer from italy. Sadly, I lost this round and any chance of getting on the podium had gone. Matteo then went on to win the World Championships.

The world rankings have now been updated and released and I can quite happily say that I am now number 4 in Europe and number 6 in the World in my respective category. Progress is being made, there is however a lot more to go.

I continue to learn, train and practice ready for the European Championships in Rotterdam on the 16th of August.
May I thank all my Friends, Family and supporters for their best wishes and in particular the Original Biscuit Bakers for their continued support of me. Their financial sponsorship, which enabled my spotter and I to compete in this event is very much appreciated.”
