Meet the GB Para World and European Championship team

The team going to the Para World and European Championships has been announced.

There is just 5 weeks before the team will depart for the World Championships in Pilzen, Czech Republic, which will serve as the first opportunity for the athletes to secure quota spots for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games.

They will then return to the UK for a short period of time before heading out to the European Championships from 14-20 August. This event also provides the team with opportunities to secure further places for the Paralympic Games.

Meet the team:

Compound Men Open

Recurve Men Open

Para Programme Manager Rachel Bayley said: “Congratulations to all of the athletes selected to represent Great Britain at the forthcoming World and European Championships. There has been a huge amount of effort and hard work over the last 12 months, into simply being selected, and for that they should be congratulated. We now sharpen our focus and look forward to the challenge.”
