Three golds for Rugby archers in Nuneaton

TWO MEMBERS OF Rugby Sport for the Disabled came away from the National Crossbow Federation’s Nuneaton shoot with two gold medals and one silver.

Both Iris Bingham and Kevin Rumble set world and European records at the event held at Nuneaton’s Archer’s new ground.

It was a near perfect day but windy at times for participants which included Steffen Wolfering, who travelled over from German for the shoot, and Simon Emmitt the NCF’s latest recruit.

Bingham broke her WCSA World and European 65m records from 2007 and her 45m European record from 2014 as she claimed victory with a total score of 835 out of 900.

Bingham said: “My records are so high I thought would be impossible to beat them again but I’m delighted to break them.

Rumble himself broke records too by setting new world and European scores in the WCSA 55m category. His score of 529 out of 600 was enough to win the Sporting category, while team mate Graeme Mooney finished runner-up with 487.

A delighted Mooeny added: “I really enjoyed the shoot and the atmosphere was great. Many Nuneaton club members supported the shoot.”

Tournament gold went to Wolfering who scored 805 out of 900, while Emmitt won the Men’s event with 414 from 600 and the Senior Men’s crown went to Alan Gregory with a score of 424.
