John Grose Sponsor Double Gold Medallist Nicky Hunt
We're proudly sponsoring Archer Nicky Hunt and supplying her with a brand new Peugeot RCZ GT.
In 2009 Nicky became the first Britain to win a World Cup stage and ended the World Cup Series ranked 1st with the compound bow. 2010 was a fantastic year, in which she made 3 of the 4 World Cup stage gold medal finals, taking home two Silver and one Gold medal. She finished the season ranked world number one and winning Individual and Team gold at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi - England's first archery gold medal at the Commonwealth Games for 28 years.
Nicky then made the switch back to the recurve (Olympic) bow she shot and represented Great Britain with as a junior; as the compound bow isn't included in the Olympics.
After the Commonwealth Games, Nicky was accepted onto the Archery GB Olympic program and has been training full time for the London 2012 Olympics since.
Nicky has been very impressed with the Peugeot RCZ, particularly with its smooth drive, great specification including heated seats, impressive visibility and comfort - of this she said "I am now strangely looking forward to my 3 hour journeys up to Shropshire!'. We have provided Nicky with the RCZ to enable her to travel around the country to training sessions in preparation for the Olympic Games. Nicky trains three times a week at Teams GB's base in Lilleshall, Shropshire.
