A first World Cup medal for six years is just the start for Archery GB, according to Patrick Huston.
Huston, 22, led the trio of Tom Hall and Alex Wise to bronze in Antalya, Turkey, beating fourth seeds Malaysia 6-2 in the medal match.
For a team who were seeded 14th, the conversion to third speaks of their potential – especially when they have only been working together for six months.
That’s the view of Rio 2016 Olympian Huston at least, particularly with what’s ahead across the rest of 2018.
“We did a lot of team work over the winter and it’s really great to see it paying off,” said Huston.
“There’s a real close friendship and partnership between us all – that energy and dynamism just flows fantastically, so we know what we’re able to do.
“We’re all about positivity and self-belief.”
Huston, who made headlines in 2016 when he shared his own motivational affirmations during the Rio Olympics, is a relentless character full of determination and optimism.
Archery’s funding uncertainty since Rio seems to have served as a catalyst for this cohort’s success.
