Jack Grogan - Double FITA tournament Image 2
AFTER successfully competing at the 'Silver Dollar' tournament held by Croesoswallt Archers the previous week, Nethermoss Archer Jack Grogan returned to Wales again for another competition.
This time the tournament was 'Double FITA' held over the weekend by Corus Archers in Flintshire.
The tournament consisted of a two day competition shooting at distances of 90, 70, 50 and 30 metres.
Although the first day’s weather conditions were almost ideal, Jack shot with a new equipment setup which unfortunately hampered him and shot below his normal high scores.
Half way through the competition Jack reverted back to his old equipment and this had an immediate effect that saw him claw back some of his last points that resulted in him winning first place in the Gentleman's Recurve category, bringing home the silverware from Wales again.
Jack is now attending Lilleshall National Sports Centre for coaching by Olympic coaches Lloyd Brown, and Songi Woo.
This intensive coaching is in preparation of his upcoming World Youth Games tournament being held in Wuxi China, where Jack is representing Great Britain.
