Paralympic squad adds two archers


Kate Murray and Paul Brown have been added to the GB archery squad for the Paralympic Games.

Scot Murray, 59, was first reserve and wins her opportunity after Lynne Burton pulled out on medical advice.

Brown, from Hertford, takes the 12th and final place after impressing over the past six months.

"We are delighted to have both Kate and Paul on board, and are confident both of them will be genuine contenders for medals," said coach Tim Hazell.

"Obviously we are extremely disappointed for Lynne, who did so well to qualify for the Games, and hopefully she will have another opportunity."

GB Paralympic archery squad: Danielle Brown, Paul Brown, Kate Murray, Mel Clarke, Pippa Britton, Kay Lucas, John Stubbs, Mick Beard, John Cavanagh, Kathy Smith, Mike Karaphilides, Fred Stevens.
