Risk. Medals and distinctions for the archery club of Saint-Martin-d’Armagnac

A weekend with great performances and rewards has just taken place for the archery club of Saint-Martin-d’Armagnac. The latter participated, on the Auscitain shooting range, in two different championships over these two days: competition in adapted sport and competition in recurve bow.

The club, affiliated with the French Federation of adapted sport, has just qualified 6 archers for the Occitanie regional championship which will take place soon in Castres. A rich podium for the club with Nicole and Franck in a barebow, without a sight, and Bernard and Thierry ranked 6th and 7th respectively. With a physical and/or mental handicap, these athletes have proven their desire to succeed, thus showing that archery is a sport within everyone’s reach. It is “a great pride” for President Philippe Iza.
