Grace Chappell, the compound unclassified (50m) women's 2023 champion, said: "I love that this event is organised just for those with disabilities. I compete all year round as able-bodied, so shooting this event is really nice. I would encourage anyone who can to shoot this event next year. It’s run so well and the Worshipful Company of Fletchers give so much support to disabled athletes."
