LGS Archery Success

John Burns (Year 11) has been competing in Archery competitions for the last 2 years.  He first picked up a bow at the age of 13 and currently trains twice a week at Larne Leisure Centre and Larne Rugby Club.  Each training session lasts between 2-3 hours.  He has competed in competitions all over Northern Ireland within the Junior Age Category, shooting targets ranging from 10-70 yards.

John provided an update on his progress:

“Archery competitions can vary greatly due to changing distances, variable weather conditions and shifting wind speeds and directions.  As an archer you need to be able to adapt and change.  Location is always changing from competition to competition but two things stays the same; stance and hand placement; and with your stance and hand placement you can win.  I use a Recurve Bow and hold 2 records in Archery, a Field Round record and a Hunter Round record and I have been a Northern Ireland Champion for the past 2 years.  The sport is difficult and dangerous as you can set up your bow wrong which won’t allow you to shoot or a failure could happen which could cause significant injury to your arms.  Archery is based around safety and it is a lot of fun.  The last event I competed in was the Passberger Cup which consisted of an Indoor Round and an Indoor Flint Round. The rounds are based on distances and targets.  I finished in first in the Junior Category.”
