Ogden double for Godfrey
June 25, 2012 08:36 am
Larry Godfrey helped Great Britain claim a medal double on the final day of the World Cup tournament in Ogden.
The Bristolian took silver behind Mexico's Luis Alvarez in the individual recurve event and was part of the bronze medal-winning British trio in the team event.
Godfrey linked up with Alan Wills and Simon Terry to beat Italy's Mauro Nespoli, Michele Frangilli and Marco Galiazzo in the third place play-off.
And his efforts in the individual competition, in which Alvarez won the final in three close sets, earned him a place in September's grand final in Tokyo.
"Obviously it would have been nice to win gold, but credit to Luis, he shot very well on the day," said Godfrey.
"But it's been a really good week for me, and the team, and coming home with two medals is a big boost ahead of the Olympics.
"It's great that I've clinched a place at the Grand Final, I've never been to one before, so it's fantastic to be involved in such a big occasion for world archery."
