More success for Sleight
Archery GB, the national governing body for the sport of Archery in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, has announced its 2015 field rankings and there’s more good news for Island archer Lesley Sleight.
She’s topped the women’s American Flatbow category for the second year running.
It’s been another successful year for the QEII High School teacher.
Highlights have included representing Great Britain at the World 3D Championships in Italy where she finished in 13th place and gained a Bronze medal for England at the IFAA European Field Championship.
Lesley has also won the All British Field Championships, set two Archery GB UK records and gained a silver medal at the National Field Archery Society National Championships.
She’s now hoping to be selected for the Great Britain field team to compete in the European 3D Championships in Slovenia.
Lesley, who is on the Isle of Man Sports Institute Coaching Development Programme, is thanking Isle of Man Sport, QEII High School and Department of Education for their support.
