GB archers win World Cup medals


Britain's compound women archers won team gold and individual silver and bronze medals at the second round of the World Cup in Croatia.

Nichola Simpson, Nicky Hunt and Lucy Holderness combined to beat France in the team event 209-205.

Simpson missed out on individual gold by one point, losing to France's Amandine Bouillot, while Andrea Gales secured the bronze medal.

Men's compound team, Neil Wakelin, Liam Grimwood and Adam Shaw also won bronze.

The women's recurve team, which won gold at the first World Cup tournament of the season in Santo Domingo, failed to repeat the feat in Porec.

Emma Downie, Naomi Folkard and Charlotte Burgess saw off Italy in the first head-to-head round, then defeated Japan in the quarter-finals.

But Poland were just too good for them in the semis, with the British trio losing out by 207-204.

And they lost their bronze-medal match to the top-ranked Koreans.
