Huston is taking aim at a repeat of World double

Published 08/06/2015

Two years on from taking home a pair of gold medals, Patrick Huston will be hoping for a repeat performance when archery's World Youth Championships begin today.

Representing Great Britain in China last time around, Belfast-born Huston earned top spot in the cadet recurve while also winning gold in the team event, and will look to replicate that success having now graduated to the junior section.

The 19-year-old, who became involved in the sport when a pupil at Campbell College and also flirted with ice hockey, has long been touted as one of Northern Ireland's most likely Olympic hopefuls for Rio 2016 and success in Yankton, South Dakota this week would further reinforce his credentials.

Also travelling to the USA will be Aimee Convery.

The Banbridge teenager, who attends St. Patrick's College in the town, will be making her international debut after training with the Northern Ireland Archery Academy. She will take part in the cadet recurve alongside English duo Lizzie Warner and Emily Bryant.
