Olivia becomes UK archery champion

Olivia Williams M5 has been confirmed as the current UK Junior Ladies Barebow Metric Clout 90m record holder.

Shooting at the Waterside Archers Clout competition held on the 3rd March 2013 at Exbury, Olivia scored 223 points to overhaul the previous record by 4 points. Clout archery, dating back to the middle ages, sees archers shooting their arrows at a flag and scores recorded for the closest proximity.

Olivia, who has been shooting with the Hampshire Waterside Archers club for 3 years, had to wait several weeks for the confirmation from the Grand National Archery Society.

She still has one more year to break her own record at this level before moving on to the adult competition.
