Alec Potts

Potts first competed at the World Archery Youth Championships in 2011, finishing 17th in 2015. At senior level, in the 2015 World Archery Championships he placed 33rd individually and contributed to an 8th place finish by the Australian team. At his second World Cup, in Shanghai in 2016, he placed 17th individually and 9th in team competition, after qualifying third with the highest ever Australian international score to date, 685.

In May 2016, Potts was selected for the Australian archery squad at the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, in both individual and team recurve tournaments. He recorded 666 points, 37 perfect tens, and 13 bull's eyes to take the twentieth seed heading to the knockout draw from the classification round, along with his team's cumulative score of 2,005.
In the team competition, he and his compatriots Ryan Tyack and London 2012 Olympian Taylor Worth, in fourth place, beat France 5–3 in the quarter finals, then in the semifinals lost in straight sets (0–6) to tournament favorites South Korea. In the bronze medal match, they held off a late reaction from China (6–2) to secure Australia's first medal at the Rio Olympics and first ever Olympic medal in a team archery event. 

Alec has been shooting since 2008, and is a keen bowhunter as well as target archer. And has held state/national records with every single bowtype, even crossbow and barebow compound! 


Sarah Haywood 

Sarah has been competing at the international level since 2017 and held a career-high world ranking of 97 in the women’s recurve during July 2022. Her start in the sport was from a humble beginning - she made her first bow, arrow and targets with a shoelace and what she could find in her backyard.

In June 2023 Sarah entered the Singapore 2023 Asian Cup, leg three, and won through to the fourth round - finished 9th overall. The Paris 2024 Olympics hopeful then hopped over to the Paris 2023 World Cup, stage four, in August and finished 33rd overall.
