John was inspired to get into archery by London 2012 after watching American Sports star Matt Stutzman competing. In 2013, he took up the sport as a hobby.
John’s talent for the sport soon began to show, and since he was first selected to join the GB Para squad in 2014 he has gone on to shoot two European records and four world records.
His career highlights include individual silver and mixed team gold at the 2015 Para World Championships in Donauschingen, Germany and mixed team gold at the recent European Para Championships in Saint Jean De Monts, France.
