medal match of the men’s team competition to secure the nation’s first ever Olympic medal in a team event.
The trio bounced back from their semi-final loss to eventual champions Korea to defeat the Chinese with the accuracy and poise that they have worked so hard to perfect.
“It’s a great experience to be able to do that for the country,” Worth, who was born in Perth and now lives in Brisbane, said.
“The three of us boys have trained together for so long now and all we had to do was replicate what we did in training.
“Nothing special out here, just do normal shots and we were able to do that.
“Its just getting the ball rolling for the country, we’re just the start and everyone else will pick up their Games and hopefully this spurs them on for their competition.”
Note: Archery is offered as an activity by a number of QORF Green Circle Members (search Archery): who knows where that early introduction might lead?
