Sleight selected to compete for GB in Sweden

An Isle of Man archer has been selected to compete for Great Britain.

Lesley Sleight will be part of the team for the European 3D Archery Championships which take place in Sweden in September.

She’s one of 18 people selected.

Lesley says: "I feel very proud to have been selected to represent Great Britain in the Ladies Instinctive Class.

"I won the selection weekend in Bedford with a score of 654.

"This was way above the selection score set at 520 and over 90 points ahead of 2nd place.

"This will be my 5th cap for Great Britain.

"I would like to thank the Isle of Man Sports Institute for supporting me by enabling me to have help from psychologist Sian Griffiths as well as access to Strength and Conditioning training."

Lesley competed for England at the IFAA European Indoor Championships earlier this year where she gained a silver medal as well as a World and European Record score.
