Jaspreet Sagoo has helped Great Britain make history at the Antalya Hyundai World Cup 2022.

The 26-year-old, a member of Peacock Archery which is based at Shelford Rugby Club, was part of the GB squad that won its first world cup medal since 2018 and the first time it has had two recurve team medals at a world cup.

Sagoo, who goes by the nickname Jess, was making her world cup debut along with team-mate Penny Healey, and they were joined by Bryony Pitman to take the gold medal in the recurve women’s team final.

“This gold medal was well deserved,” said Sagoo, who lives near Cambridge. “Considering this was mine and Penny’s first world cup it showed how great we work as a team. So happy to have won it with these amazing team-mates.”

Healey added: “It feels amazing to have won this medal, it shows how competitive we are as a team as well as individually.

“It shows how all of our hard work is starting to pay off and it’s great to be able to show that internationally.”

Pitman won gold in the recurve women’s individual competition and took silver in the recurve mixed team competition alongside Alex Wise, while Ella Gibson was first in the compound women’s individual event to help put GB top of the medal table.

Archery GB performance director Tom Duggan said: “It’s been a fantastic week for the athletes.

“To convert three out of four of the medals to gold and not settle for silver is a great platform for the future.

“Ella and Bryony’s individual medals were so well deserved and the first time we’ve individually medalled at a World Cup since 2012.

“Bryony’s talent is clear and for her to win three medals will give her a lot of belief for the season.

“The women’s team shot brilliantly and showed the depth and potential we are seeking to build in the programme, with Jess and Penny winning their first senior World Cup medals.”
