Congratulations to Braintree Bowmen archer Amelia Chumber who bags one of the first World Archery records for Barebow, WA 25m Cadet Women.
Amelia, having only just returned from competing at the Lancaster Classic in USA where she came 7th in the Women’s Barebow competition and 1st in the Cubs category, shot at the Tudor Archers WRS Valentine Shoot in February .
All barebow records were due for ratification on 1st April so it was a bit of a wait but knew her score was a winning one .
It was disappointing therefore when her record was missed from World Archery’s original records release. Archery GB worked around staff furloughs and all the other problems that the Covid pandemic has created to get the record recognised and finally confirmed.
It has been a tremendously successful year for Amelia and many thanks go to her Coach, Richard Burgess who has put in endless hours of training in developing Amelia’s archery and to Braintree Bowmen club and it’s archers for always being supportive and encouraging Amelia in all her endeavours.
Thanks also to Tudor Archers for putting on the WRS shoot.
All round success for ECAA
Asher Chumber (Amelia's Mum!)
