Team GB found great success in archery at the Invictus Games, the first international celebration of rehabilitation through sport for wounded or sick servicemen and women of its kind in the UK.
Archery attracted more entries than any other sport at the games, and Team GB finished in a medal position for all six individual and team compound, recurve and novice events; including a clean sweep of medals for the individual recurve thanks to David Hubber, Gary Prout and Steven Gill. David Hubber and Gary Prout, along with Gavin Watson, won the gold in the open recurve team event, while Mikey Hall, from Richmond, became a double medalist in open compound. He secured gold in the team compound competition alongside Carl Harding and Andrew Phillips, and also won bronze for the individual compound event. Gus Hurst, Paul Twaites and Declan O’Hallorhan took the novice recurve team gold, with Paul Twaites also picking up individual novice recurve silver.
