Performer Patrick Huston (10983) aims to fire ‘sexy’ archery back to the British sporting big time and the flamboyant Team GB ace singled out the most effective way to capture the public’s imagination — gold medal glory in Tokyo this summer.

In April he officially selected to compete in his second Olympic Games after slipping to a last 32 defeat in Rio.

He’s racked up World Championship, European Championship and European Games medals and has lived and breathed archery since first picking up a bow as an eight-year-old.

Entertainer Huston loves putting on a show and hopes bringing archery’s vibrant, striking colours into the nation’s living rooms can catapult its status to new heights.

The 25-year-old, one of over 1,000 National Lottery-funded elite athletes on UK Sport’s World Class Programme, said: “My skill is that I’m a bit of an actor and performer on the big stage.

“Archery is such a sexy sport and has so many nuances. The fantastic thing about archery is how good it looks — it’s not only socially-distanced but, from a public engagement point of view, it really is a sexy sport.
