Well done to club friend, James Mason and the team.
Neil Bridgewater, James Mason and Adam Ravenscroft are the new compound champions of Europe
They took the men’s team title at the European Archery Championships in in Legnica, Poland today, beating France by a single point – and in dramatic style.
The French took a one point lead in the first end but in the second Britain pulled back to equalise on 117 points. It was then that a French arrow was downgraded, giving Neil, James and Adam a one point lead. By the time the third end was completed both teams were evenly balanced on 172 – until that French arrow was upgraded again.
It all came down to the final end. With rain falling, the French opened with a perfect 30 but then shot 8-9-9. The Britons shot 10-9-10 but finished with three 10s to become champions of Europe.
