Great Britain squad named for Archery World Championships

Great Britain name a squad of 12 archers for the World Championships which begin in Copenhagen at the end of this month.

Olympians Naomi Folkard, Amy Oliver and Larry Godfrey head a 12-strong British squad for the upcoming World Championships in Copenhagen.

Kieran Slater, who recently reached the last 16 at the European Games, will also feature, and head of performance Oliver Logan believes that the event should provide valuable experience ahead of next year's Olympic Games.

Logan told Archery GB: "The World Championships will be the first opportunity for the recurve archers to secure quota places for Rio. This event will provide a high-pressurised environment to compete against the best in the world providing invaluable experience ahead of the Olympics next year."

Nicky Hunt, Patrick Huston, Danielle Brown, Naomi Jones, Lucy O'Sullivan, Duncan Busby, Adam Ravenscroft and Mark Rudd make up the remainder of the squad who will feature at the event which begins on July 26.
