Olympic recurve archery setup (2019)
Let me introduce to my current archery setup and I’ll do some follow up posts on what I would like to have as I move to 70m Olympic shooting distance. I’ve been shooting with club equipment and I’ve slowly replaced with my own as I progress. Its been 3 years since I started archery but I had to take a break from for about a year with work stuff and my 2nd daughter on the way. A couple of months back I decided to get back to practising and invest in Pro-level equipment so that I’ll have fewer reasons to skip this hobby.

Lessons from my first archery tournament
I had no idea how to hold a bow 3 months ago but I wanted to learn archery. I’ve been training target archery for 1 1/2 hours every weekend and I have closer to 15 hours of training now. I was so excited when my coach Nipuna Senevirathne said that I have enough skills to participate in the Wayamba – All Island Archery championship 2017 under the Novices category.
