Top eight target for archer Hunt

Suffolk archer Nicky Hunt has set her sights on a top eight World Cup finish as she prepares for the first qualifiers in the Dominican Republic.

Hunt, 23, recently returned from this month's European Indoor Archery Championships in Turin with a bronze medal in the women's compound event.

And the British number one is eager for more success in the Caribbean sunshine in April.

"I'm looking for a top eight finish," she told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"After that the second stage is in Croatia."

Hunt, who is ranked 14th in the world, also lined up with Nichola Simpson and Lucy Holderness to take the bronze in the women's compound team tournament in Turin and was pleased with her performance.

"It was a good achievement," she said. "You want to go there with high expectations, but in a 12 arrow head-to-head anything can happen."

Hunt fires over 1,000 arrows during a regular week but admits to recently getting a little carried away.

"I'm shooting a Hoyte Ultra Elite," said Hunt. "I've only had it a few weeks now, but it's one of the top bows being shot at the moment.

"You also get a little bit of new bow syndrome where you just want to shoot it all the time."
