Danielle Brown in battle for World Championship bronze
Lothersdale’s Danielle Brown is fighting for a World Archery Championship bronze medal tomorrow in Turkey.
The 25-year-old is part of the Great Britain team facing France in the compound women’s event in Belek.
Rikki Bingham, Brown and Andrea Gales first vanquished Mexico 191-185 and then Canada 178-169 to earn a place in the semi-finals against Colombia.
The weather has played a key role throughout these championships, and this match was no different.
The Colombian women donned backpacks to give them extra stability and the tactic seemed to work as they seized the initiative, taking the first set 42-31.
Britain battled back to take the second but then Colombia pulled ahead to win the match 194-165.
The bronze-medal match should be screened on Eurosport 2 and Archery TV at 9am. Colombia will take on the Netherlands in the final.
In the compound women’s singles, Brown qualifed tenth and had a first-round bye.
In the second round, she defeated Poland’s Anna Stanieczek 145-140 but fell 126-119 in gusty conditions in the last 16 to Mexico’s Brenda Merino. Bingham lost 110-108 in the last eight to Croatia’s Maja Orlic.
Brown teamed up with Adam Ravenscroft in the compound mixed team and qualifed fourth but they lost to South Africa’s DP Bierman and Danielle Wentzel 150-148 in the first round.
