The Scottish Archery Association are proud to announce, two of Scotland’s, home grown, hardworking and dedicated archers, Murray Elliot and Kate Murray have been selected in the squad of thirteen archers.  Unfortunately, Alasdair Hamilton and David Gardner missed final selection, but recognition of their achievements should not go unnoticed.

 

Chair of Scottish Archery, Tracy McGarry said “the progress made by our athletes in the past few years have been astounding, it has been a long and exhausting journey for everyone involved, including all the support staff.  Congratulations to both Kate and Murray.  Their dream of selection for the Olympic Team has been realised and it could not have happened to two genuinely nicer individuals”.

 

 

“I hope this amazing news will finally get Scottish Archery recognised fully in Scotland as a strong player in the world of Scottish Governing Bodies and get the support and investment needed to continue providing quality athletes on the world stage”.

 

The full squad was announced at the Manchester World Cup today at 12 noon.
