Jamie Harris is from Stratford Upon Avon. From birth his lower right arm was missing multiple bones resulting in its length being reduced and only having two fingers on his hand. He uses this arm to draw the bow after first getting into archery in 2012 at an event called Limb Power, at Stoke Mandeville. After discovering his love for the sport, he joined a local club. It quickly became apparent shooting off his fingers would not be viable due to his disability. To continue shooting, he switched to compound shooting which allowed him to develop a custom trigger release that attaches around his arm.
The development of his triggers is ongoing as it’s integral to shooting. Harris made great improvements to both his shooting abilities and equipment reliability. This has enabled him to medal at every National Disability Championship since it started in 2017 and he has won it three times (2018, 2021 and 2022). He won bronze with teammate Jessica Stretton in the mixed team at the 2022 World Para Championships and another bronze with teammate Phoebe Paterson Pine at the Nove Mesto 2022 Para Archery European Cup. Jamie won two golds for GB at the European Para Cup Finals 2022, taking top spot in the individual Compound Men Open event and winning the Compound Open Mixed Team competition, alongside Phoebe Paterson Pine.
