Archery GB names Olympic Team
Archery GB has announced its men’s and women’s team to represent Great Britain at this year’s Olympic Games. In the men’s event, Larry Godfrey, Simon Terry and Alan Wills were selected whilst Amy Oliver, Naomi Folkard and Alison Williamson were named as the women’s team.
The final selection which took place at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in a multitude of weather conditions – driving rain, hail, wind and sunshine proved to be a challenge to all those taking part. The archers will compete against 46 others in the individual tournament and as a men’s and women’s team in the team tournament.
Neil Armitage, Marketing Director at Foresters commented, “As official sponsors of Archery GB we would like to wish Larry, Simon, Alan, Amy, Naomi and Alison the best of luck at the forthcoming Games.”
