English archers on the paralympic squad have won a gold medal and two silvers on the final day of competition at the European Grand Prix tournament at Stoke Mandeville for disabled archers from around the world.

The gold medallist was once again Danielle Brown, in the women’s compound tournament to continue what is becoming a great summer for her.

Last month she secured a place at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi later this year, and won the National Series tournament at Lilleshall. She came second at another National Series event, at Bradford, earlier this month.

Silver medals went to Kenny Allen in the men’s standing recurve, and John Cavanagh, who also had to settle for the runners-up spot in the W1 compound men’s event.

“It’s been a fantastic effort, and it’s great to have won some medals this week,” said GB Paralympic coach Tim Hazell.

The GB Paralympic Squad competed against rivals from as far afield as Japan, Malaysia and the United States at at the European Grand Prix at Stoke Mandeville Stadium this week.

British individual para-archers also competed against each other in the British Wheelchair Archery National Championships, which ran simultaneously to the Grand Prix.

The tournament was a World Ranking Status event, and had been accredited by the Grand National Archery Society (GNAS) for a FITA Star.

Teams entered this year were: Great Britain, USA, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Chinese Taipei, Brazil, Turkey and Japan
