Three Sussex Field Archers have represented Great Britain during August and September.

Jamie Cole was selected to shoot Compound in the World Championships at Zagreb, Croatia. He successfully came through the Qualification Round, but did not progress beyond the Elimination Round, ending in 15th Place.

Michaela Lake was selected to represent GB in the European 3-D Championships at Tallin, Estonia,  shooting Instinctive, following a very successful Summer when she became both English and Irish Champion. A near-novice to 3-D she nevertheless ended in 11th place in Europe, just ten points below the cut.

Gary Cole was also selected for  the European 3-D Championships shooting Compound Unlimited, and after the 2-day Qualification rounds was very well placed at 5th. But in the 12-arrow elimination round very poor light at three of the targets meant he was unable to see the target well enough in the sight scope he  was using and ended up with nine points less that he needed to make the cut for the finals, enough to drop to 15th place.

Not only is Sussex proud because these archers were selected, they all also made it to the Elimination Rounds, and were only points away from the next round.
