Archer Lesley Sleight has finished the season in emphatic fashion by breaking  two of her own British records . At the weekend Lesley competed in the two day Yorkshire Field Championship near Woolley. The record status event saw Lesley break the British Womens’ American Flatbow  FITA 24 target marked course record with a score of 193 points  beating her previous record of 184 by 9 points. The mens ‘ FITA record was also broken at the weekend with a score of 170 some 23 points behind Lesley’s record breaking score.

Lesley also smashed the British FITA 24 Combined record with a score of 396 points  increasing the previous record by 27 points. The combined score consists of points from the first day FITA 24 unmarked round and second day FITA 24 marked round. On the first day Lesley was just 7 points shy of the British record.

‘Lesley said I have steadily improved over the season and it is great to finish with personal best scores. I would like to thank Celton Manx for helping with travel costs for competitions over the last month. I have had such a fantastic year and being selected to compete for Great Britain in the European 3D Championships was a wonderful experience. My target for next season is to grequired number of qualification scores for consideration to compete for  team GB in the World 3D Championships.’
