Archery GB performance director Sara Symington has hailed Simon Terry, Larry Godfrey and Alan Wills for their gold medal showing in Turkey.

The trio secured top spot in the team event at Sunday's World Cup competition in Antalya, Turkey, defeating a strong India side 222-211 in the gold medal match.

It was Great Britain's first win over their Indian counterparts for five years and a timely boost ahead of the London Olympics.

"It was an outstanding performance from the guys, and we're all as proud of them as they should be of themselves," said Symington.

"They shot brilliantly, first to get to the final and then in the gold medal match itself.

"This has been a great week, and it's a fantastic finale.
