Tania first started archery for fun in 2014, when she wanted a new hobby which would get her out and about and meeting new people.

In the same year Tania was talent spotted as part of the ‘Recurves for Rio’ project, when she was fast-tracked on to the GB squad in just six months.

She made her Paralympic debut at Rio 2016, competing in both the women’s individual recurve (open) where she ranked 17th.

In the mixed team event Tania competed alongside David Phillips. The pair were knocked out at the quarter-final stage of the recurve mixed team competition in a tense shoot-off by top seeds Iran 5-4.

Away from the Paralympic stage, Tania’s career highlights include team bronze at the 2016 European Para Championships in Saint Jean De Monts, France, team bronze at the 2015 Para World Ranking event in Almere, Holland and third place in the Rio qualification tournament at the 2015 Para World Championships in Donauschingen, Germany earning a quota place for the Paralympic Games in Rio.

In addition to archery, Tania has a Masters degree in Philosophy from the University of St Andrews and had a successful career in Public Relations for 12 years before becoming a full time athlete.
