World Archery Para Championships

Since becoming a paraplegic in 1986 it wasn't until Australia Day 2015 that I first picked up a bow and the following October I shot my first archery tournament.

Over the past two years I have placed 2nd in the National Para Championships as well as holding my own against able bodied competitors in the Master Male Compound division at a state level.

I am now very proud to have been chosen to help represent Australia at the 2017 World Archery Para Championships in Beijing, China! Our ultimate goal is to build a secure foundation to gain spots and send a strong team to the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo.

Of course, as a self funded archer, my personal finances are taking a big hit. Not only are there the cost of air fares and accommodation but ongoing equipment needs and travelling interstate to various tournaments have already taken a large toll. There's only so much a disability pension and maxed out credit card can handle!

Which is where you may be able to help! Any donation, no matter how small, to help me achieve my goals and do Australia proud would be greatly appreciated.
