About Emma

"I started archery as a complete beginner here at Warwick during my undergrad and have been shooting for 8 years.

I’m a final year PhD student now, so I’ve been at Warwick for a while! Archery requires a lot more strength and endurance than it might first appear – we often shooting 150+ arrows in a day and every time we pull the string back it’s the equivalent of loading 30-50lbs (or 14-23kg) through the wrist and shoulder – so the strength and conditioning support at Warwick Sport has been vital. Outdoors we’re aiming to hit an area the size of a CD from 70m away.

I also enjoy climbing (it’s great cross-training for grip and shoulder strength) and anything that gets me outdoors."
