    There were a total of 14 British competitors on the hunt for places at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo.

    The biggest star is Jessica Stretton, the reigning Paralympic champion in the women’s W1 individual compound category, who became Britain’s youngest ever medallist at the age of just 16 when she triumphed in Rio in 2016.

    She will be competing in two finals today - she is going for her first gold medal in the women's compound open category and will also be involved in the team compound open medal matches alongside her team-mates Phoebe Pine and Jodie Grinham.

    GB have already earned three quota places at the Paralympics courtesy of Nathan Macqueen, John Stubbs and Stretton, with more spots in Tokyo up for grabs over the course of the weekend.

  2. What are the World Archery Para Championships?

    The World Archery Para Championships were first hosted in the UK in 1998 and are now held biannually, bringing the finest para-archers in the world to compete for glory and a place in the Paralympic Games.

    The 2019 edition is taking place in Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands and will feature 292 competitors from 52 different countries.

    The W1 category involves athletes who require a wheelchair, while the V1 and V2/3 classifications are for archers who have visual impairments. These athletes can be assisted by an assistant, who relays the positions of the arrows and target. The Open categories include para-athletes with a range of impairments and mobility requirements.

    There are team and individual medals on offer, and the events use both the compound and recurve bows.

    Fancy yourself as the next Robin Hood?

    Archery is the age-old art of propelling an arrow towards a target with unerring accuracy. As a competitive sport or just a recreational activity, it's very popular all across Britain with clubs teeming with budding archers.

    Archery doesn't require a lot of mobility making it accessible to a huge range of people. It is, however, a good workout and is very social. It helps you build muscle endurance and flexibility, develop hand-eye co-ordination and body strength.
