Danielle Brown propelled herself into public consciousness this year - and the history-making archer is ready to hog the headlines all over again in 2011.

Brown wrote herself into the record books at October's Commonwealth Games in Delhi when she became England's first disabled athlete to win an able-bodied medal in the team compound competition.

Even before she claimed her ground-breaking gold medal, the 22-year-old was the talk of the Indian capital as her on-field heroics meant the interview requests flew in.

Brown is expecting interest levels to rise even further in 2011 as she looks to compete in both the able-bodied and disabled categories at the World Archery Championships - but she can't wait.

"I don't think I could have asked for a better Commonwealth Games - it was a fantastic experience for me," said Brown.

"It was my first major able-bodied event, and before I went out to the Games I didn't think what I was doing was that big of a deal because I compete with able-bodied people domestically.

"But I kept doing media stuff and it wasn't until I was actually about to shoot my first arrow of the competition and I turned around and there were 50 cameras pointing at me - and I thought then that it was quite big.

"The World Championships are the big one next year and I am hoping to make the able-bodied team again, and I will be training hard for that.

"I don't know how it will work because the able-bodied and disabled competitions are at the same time but it is two different distances. I really want to do both but I will have to see."

With her favoured event - the compound - not part of the able-bodied Olympic schedule, Brown's long-term goal is the London Paralympics in 2012.

Brown has an impressive pedigree at that level, having claimed gold at the Beijing Games in 2008 and she revealed London is firmly top of the agenda.

She upped sticks and moved to Telford in the aftermath of the Delhi Games to be closer to archery's central base at the English Institute of Sport High Performance Centre at Lilleshall - a switch she believes is already paying dividends.

"I am learning all the time, I have got a coach now which I have never really had before, and we have picked up things that didn't go too well in Delhi," added Brown.

"There are world-class facilities at Lilleshall, there is a 70m outdoor range and a 70m indoor hall, and even though the weather is rubbish I can actually shoot my outdoor distance all year round."
