A BROTHER and sister duo both picked up medals last week as the UK’s finest archers assembled in Nottingham for the National Tour finals.

Taking place at Wollaton Hall, both Adam Carpenter and his sister Izzy were successful as they continued their fine form.

In the Compound Men competition Adam shot to gold, beating Khai Thomas-Prause and won his third consecutive National Tour title.

Adam is a member of Barnsley Archery Club, on Shaw Lane, like his sister and began the sport when he went on holiday to Centre Parcs.

He has goals set for the year to make the team for the senior and junior European Championships.

Izzy managed to bag a bronze medal in the same event last weekend, adding to her individual gold medal at this year’s European Championships in Munich.
