Dr Sammons in Biomaterials shares the joy of 2nd year Biomaterial student Alex Morrell who with the Birmingham team did exceptionally well at a recent Archery competition. Alex only took up archery a year ago
Dear Dr Sammons,
Just to let you know how we did at Telford 🙂
Personally I finished 8th out of around 600 people which i’m completely ecstatic about! behind 4 Great Britain archers, and shot 573/600 which was a personal best! As a team, Birmingham experienced (4 people) we got a PODIUM!!! we came 3rd, incredibly close!! Which is the first time we’ve got a podium at a national shoot since 1995! So an absolutely fantastic result! This also means I brought back “BUCS points” for the university so get some prize money and a “Half blue award” or something like that 🙂 which is great!On a side note Ashe Morgan (from Birmingham does Physics (and a GB archer)) came joint second individually scoring 588/600 so he did really well!!
