June 21, 2012 08:00 am
Larry Godfrey will shoot for the recurve gold medal at the World Cup archery event in Ogden, USA after a tense semi-final win over India's Tarundeep Rai.
Godfrey will face France's Gael Provost in the final of the last international event before this summer's Olympic Games after winning a one-arrow shoot-off against Rai, who had battled back from 4-0 down to 5-5.
"Phew - it was close, it was tense, but I'm absolutely thrilled to be in the final," said Godfrey. "It's been a great day at the office but there's no let-up now, I want that gold medal and I'll be working towards that for the rest of the week."
Simon Terry reached the last 16 while Alan Wills was eliminated in round two, in a one-arrow shoot-off against eventual semi-finalist luis Alvarez. Terry, Wills and Godfrey won team gold at last month's event in Antalya, Turkey.
In the women's event, Alison Williamson was edged out in a third-round shoot-off and Amy Oliver reached the last 16.
