James Mason shoots at Blackthorn Bowmen. He started shooting in 1993. James’s sister was the first person in the household to try archery and then his dad got heavily into the sport when his rugby days were coming to an end. James’s biggest achievements so far are winning 2 Gold Medals whilst representing Great Britain. He said the European Championships team with Neil Bridgewater and Adam Ravenscroft was an amazing experience in 2018. He also won Mixed Team Gold at the World Cup in 2019 alongside Ella Gibson which was the first World Cup Gold Medal GB had won for quite a few years. His proudest achievement was winning the AGB National Indoors in 2013. It was a tough win, he had a lot of hard-fought matches and he won one arrow shoot-offs in the quarter final, semi-final and final. It was his first big win as a senior and the only one his dad got to see. James’s dad was already ill at the time and unfortunately passed away in October 2014.
This year James would like to improve on his performances from last season and just get back to his 2019 performances winning regularly domestically and hopefully pushing on a bit more internationally. James felt his qualification rounds were as strong as ever after the pandemic but he really struggled to shoot to the same level in his matches. James tries to help out at The Archery Company whenever he is able. He likes to help the sport grow and to try and help people improve. James worked with Archery GB’s Youth Compounds in Poland at the Youth World Championships and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will hopefully get to work with them again in the future.
