Lord's is hailed a "fantastic venue" for the archery during next year's Olympic Games in London.

Organisers have hailed Lord's cricket ground as a "fantastic venue" for the archery at next year's Olympic Games in London.

A test event has just concluded in preparation for the Games and World Archery general secretary Tom Dielen has declared that the practice run was a success.

"World Archery is very excited about holding Olympic archery in this fantastic venue," said Dielen.

"The athletes, staff and volunteers all fell in love with Lord's and we can't wait for Lord's to become the home of Archery next summer."

Five-time British Olympian Alison Williamson failed to progress beyond the second round at Lord's earlier today.
