CIRENCESTER archery star Phoebe Paterson-Pine has been named in the latest squad for the upcoming Para World and European Championships later this summer.

The current Paralympic champion and world number one in the Compound Women Open category will take part in the championships that take place in July and August of this year. 

Paterson-Pine, who is now studying at the University of Worcester, won gold in Tokyo at the Paralympic Games in 2021 and holds multiple national, European and world records in archery. The 25-year-old broke five UK, European and World records over five days in 2022.

Paterson-Pine has achieved remarkable things, having already won gold with teammate Jamie Harris at the 2022 European Para Cup Final as part of the mixed team and bronze in the Compound Women individual event, she is sure to be one of the front runners at this year's events.

She makes up a nine-strong team to head to the consecutive championships, where they will be able to secure qualification for the 2024 Paralympic Games in 2024.

The European Championships will be held in Kop van Zuid in the Netherlands between August 16-20 after the World Championships, in Pilsen Czech Republic, between July 17-23.
