North Wales' Nick Thomas has won a European bronze medal at the European Para Archery Championships.

Mr Thomas, from Talysarn, Gwynedd, brought home one of five medals for Team GB's para archery squad who travelled to competition in Rome.

For VI 2/3 archer, Mr Thomas, the championships were a memorable experience.

He won the bronze after he beat his Belgian opponent in the final with a 7-1 win.

Mr Thomas said: "It was a stunning venue to shoot at, although very nerve racking.

"I really enjoyed the experience and to win the medal with Marie, my wife, supporting me, makes it extra special."

Cameron Radigan, a new European Para Champion, also delighted with his first international individual gold.

He acknowledged the complexity of the final match, speaking about the changing environmental conditions.

He said: "I was calm and looking forward to the final.

"During the match it got really warm really fast.

"Luckily, we implemented my cooling routine very quickly so I was able to perform at my best."

He then went onto win another gold in the doubles with Dave Phillips.

Para archery GB coach, Charlotte Burgess said: "They know how to support and communicate each other's needs.

"This only comes with the amount of time they have committed and trained together.

"I couldn't be happier."

Medals were also brought home by Phoebe Paterson Pine, who earned herself two bronzes in the compound open mixed and women's open doubles categories.
