Golds for Rugby Sport for the Disabled members

Two members of Rugby Sport for the Disabled returned from the 25m National Championship shoot in Gloucester with gold medals and hopefully Assisted (Disabled) World, European and National records too.

The National Crossbow Federation of Great Britain only organises one 25m shoot each year. Graeme said, “It is impossible to practice this distance and a vertical 60cm 3 spot target face was so difficult, but at least the ten ring was 6cm across. The temperature was 4C as there was little heating in the rifle range but for a change the lighting was good. It was a great shoot”.

Iris said, “I always find it difficult with a vertical target to tip the bow to reach the top and bottom targets but was delighted with my score. I only dropping one point and achieved 57 ring tens out of the 60 scoring shots. I believe I have broken my existing records in the single and double rounds”.

RSDA Golds, with totals out of 600, were won by:
