A SUPERB display in beating the world number two has put Hertfordshire archer Paul Browne into the quarter-finals of the men’s individual recurve (W1/W2) at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

In fine weather at the Royal Artillery Barracks earlier today (Friday) the 51-year-old firstly defeated Malaysia’s Mohd Zafi Rahman Mat Saleh 6-0 in the last 16 elimination stage.

Clearly in the mood for success, Browne, who has trained at the Howard Bowmen Archery Club in Lemsford, then saw off the challenge of world number two Piotr Sawicki from Poland 6-4.

Browne will head back to the Barracks tomorrow (Saturday) for his quarter-final clash with Chinese Taipei’s Hui Lung Tseng at 3.30pm.

The winner of that will go through to Monday’s semi-finals and final with the real hope of returning home with a medal.
