A note from Joe Ground on being selected to represent England
at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa
 
I started archery just before my tenth birthday after enjoying a have-a-go session at a village fete, I then started a beginners course and joined Thorpe Hamlet Juniors. I won my first National Championships at the age of ten and since then I have won four more national championships and I have claimed four national records. Last year was my most successful so far, I represented Great Britain on three occasions, the European Youth Championships in Ljbubliana, Slovenia, where I won gold with the cadet men team, the Europa Cup final in Moscow, Russia where we won gold again and the International Archery Festa in Seoul, South Korea.
 
My overall ambition is to represent Great Britain at the Olympics and to win an Olympic Gold Medal.
 
Being selected to compete for Team England at Samoa is a great achievement for me, and I am really excited to be given this opportunity. I am also looking forward to competing at a multi-sport event and watching other top athletes in their respective sports.
