Lewis Bodkin -

Hi, I’m Lewis Bodkin, aged 13 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 Junior Master Bowman status during the 2022 season finishing with 1st place at this years Youth Festival in the U14 Recurve Individual Category and finishing first in the 2022 Junior Nationals. I also finished 26th (out of 46) in the 2021 Junior Indoor Nationals in the recurve division which I was extremely proud of.


I am very pleased to be a regular archer shooting for County and West Midlands at their Junior Event.


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