Lucy mason World Archery Youth Champion

Britain has another world champion! Compound cadet Lucy Mason romped to victory in the individual title decider at the World Archery Youth Championships in Rosario, Argentina, beating Canada’s Alexandra Paquette.

The gloves were off as the fifth and sixth seeds went head to head but Lucy led from the start. The Canadian edged the third end but it was not enough as the 17-year-old, who had earlier seen off Australia’s Niamh Jones, Buse Basak Haney of Turkey India’s Sanchita Tiwari and Mexican top seed Andrea M Becerra Arizaga secured the title with a clear 142-138 win.

A fantastic result for you Lucy we are so pleased for you and we at Wales Archery are proud to support you.
