World Archery Para Championships 2017

18 September, 2017

I had the honour of working at these in Beijing. You can find all the coverage at World Archery. Am just going to add a couple of pics here, most of which I took from my tent position, face on to the athletes.

It was a great meet, with the final day especially of really outstanding quality and exciting competition, lots of comebacks and great final pushes. Tricky conditions, though, especially for wheelchair athletes; it was a mostly hot and humid week.

It’s awesome how much the para community treats it both as a serious competition and a chance to see friends and colleagues from all over the world. It’s a festival that they have every couple of years. See you at ’s-Hertogenbosch 2019.


The Azzurri not being quite forza against Iran. Cracking match.

Zhou Jiamin. Could deliver punchy, awesome quotes about sport. On cue. In English. We loved her

Andre Shelby. An absolute stand-up dude in a field crammed with stand-up dudes and dudettes.

there was some wildlife.
