Shropshire-based double Paralympic gold medallist Danielle Brown has spoken of her delight at adding a silver medal to her collection over the weekend.
The Telford-based archer finished second at the World Cup in Tokyo after being edged out in the final by American Jamie Van Natta by a single point in the gold medal match.
The feat made Brown the fourth GB archer to win a World Cup medal, adding another milestone to a weekend which had already seen her make history as the first Paralympian ever to take part in a World Cup final.
“I’m so pleased I managed to shoot better scores than at the Paralympics,” said Brown.
“I’m really happy with this medal.
“I didn’t know I would be coming here until a week ago, so I didn’t expect anything at all but to come home with a medal is brilliant.
“It was easier to shoot here than at the Paralympics. The competition level was obviously higher here, but there was no expectations on me at all. I’m really happy.”
Brown had been given a late call-up to the tournament after Venezuela’s Olga Bosch pulled out last week.
On her way to the final Brown defeated both Italy’s Marcella Tonioli and the USA’s Christie Colin.
