FIVE Benara Bowmen Archery Club members recently returned from Switzerland from the first World Archery Masters Championships.

About 360 archers from 41 countries aged between 40 and 79 competed in the August 14 to 18 championships, with 17 representing Australia.

Benara members Danie and Corleen Oosthuizen (Yanchep), Margreth Taylor (Yokine), David Crabtree (Wanneroo) and Sue Swain (Alkimos) participated in the multi-discipline event that included indoor, outdoor and field.

Crabtree won bronze medals in his division for outdoor and field while Swain won a silver medal in outdoor and gold medals in both indoor and field for her division.

All the Benara archers enjoyed meeting other competitors from around the world with the same love of the sport.

They are talking about competing again in 2021 when the next Masters Championships will be in Japan.
