Lewis Bodkin -

Hi, I’m Lewis Bodkin, aged 14 from Audco Archers, Newport, Shropshire. I have been shooting recurve since I was 8 years old and always find I am at my happiest with my bow in my hand. In 2020 I was accepted onto the Archery GB National Age Group Academy and I am thoroughly enjoying my archery journey and all the opportunities it has given me.


I started shooting following an after-school club when I was in year 3, I instantly loved archery and was eager to begin shooting properly. Since then I have accomplished a lot. My most recent accomplishments are being awarded Elite Junior Master Bowman status during the 2023 season, finishing 1st in both the Junior National Indoor and Outdoor Championships in the U15 category for 2023 and finishing 1st in U15 Category in the Junior Masters. I also finished the summer ranked 5th in the Junior National Rankings 


I am very pleased to be a regular archer shooting for County and West Midlands at their Junior Event and was delighted to shoot for England in the Junior Indoor Nationals at Stoneleigh in December 2023.


With the help of my coach, Nicky Hunt and my personal trainer Craig I am constantly striving to better myself.
