Double gold for Brown at archery world championships



The 19-year-old student fired a new world record in the individual women’s open compound event at the IPC Archery World Championships to take the gold ahead of fellow Brit Mel Clarke (Norwich, Norfolk) in silver medal spot. GB’s Pippa Britton (Newport, Gwent) also put in a top performance but just missed the podium and finished fourth with her score of 1318.

The trio then teamed up to take Britain’s second gold in the women’s open compound team competition ahead of Japan in silver and Russia with bronze.

There was then also a bronze medal for Paralympian Kathy Critchlow-Smith (Abingdon, Oxfordshire), Kate Murray (Hawick, Roxburghshire) and Kay Lucas (Ludlow, Shropshire) who teamed up in the women’s recurve team competition, finishing third behind China with the gold and the Czech Republic with silver.

Elsewhere in the individual competitions, Kathy Critchlow-Smith finished sixth in the W2 women’s recurve.

These performances saw Britain finish third in the medal table at the championships, which was an opportunity to secure qualification slots for the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games.

The 2007 IPC Archery World Championships took place in Cheongju, Korea from October 2 to 10.
