"Super proud to be on the team" - Team GB Archer Patrick Huston is selected for his 2nd Olympics

Published on: 22nd April, 2021

The Archery teams for Team GB and Paralympics GB have been named for Tokyo this summer and amongst them is friend of this podcast Patrick Huston.

Patrick takes us to his club in the Shropshire countryside to tell us what becoming a two times Olympian means to him and how proud he is to be part of a team he thinks will come back with medals.

He talks about the wait for the Games and the challenge of getting Covid and missing several weeks of training.

And he talks about the way he's changed his body since the Rio Games to make him feel an athlete and one who's more than capable of winning gold.
