AN INTERVIEW WITH GARETH
When did you get into archery?
What do you enjoy most about archery?
It’s a sport that is open to all people, no matter if you have an injury or illness, old or young, you can shoot for fun or in competition.
What has been your most memorable experience to date?
Winning the gold in the Archery at the 2016 Invictus games. I was shooting against a Canadian called Nic Meunier. The head to heads went to
What would be your best advice to upcoming archers?
Know when to pack your bow away for the day. Overtraining can be a nightmare, a friend of mine put in 10 hours of training but then couldn’t pull his bow for 3 days after. Don’t overdo it as you will lose training time in the end.
What do you get up to when you’re not shooting?
I am currently learning the Saxophone, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be able to play Baker Street on the Sax??
