GB men’s team claim archery silver

Great Britain men's archery team

Great Britain men’s archery team lost out on gold by virtue of not shooting closest to the centre at the event in Nottingham

Great Britain’s men’s team agonisingly lost out on a gold medal to Russia at the European Archery Championships.

Larry Godfrey, Kieran Slater and Patrick Huston went to a recurve shoot-off and despite scores being level, had to settle for silver as Russia’s arrow was closest to the centre.

Huston, of Belfast, also managed to win a bronze medal in the individual event.

Britain’s women’s team lost their bronze medal match to Germany, with the Ukraine side winning the gold medals.
