SCONE’s Joanne Bogie is currently representing Australia in the World Field Archery Championships at Wagga Wagga.
More than 550 athletes from a number of countries including the United States, Wales and South Africa will compete at the event until September 30.
Bogie is shooting in her trademark Bowhunter Limited division.
“Obviously I feel very honoured to be chosen as part of the team and I just hope that I can do well down there,” she said earlier this week.
“Once I get to Wagga Wagga I’ll be camping on the grounds, getting organised and then start practicing.
“Apart from myself, there are a few other archers from the [Upper Hunter] area competing as well, and I’m sure they’ll enjoy the experience.”
Prior to the championships, Bogie’s success at the national titles in Mudgee saw her gain selection in the initial Australian Champion of Nations squad of 15.
One archer was then picked from each of the seven divisions in the lead-up to the championships, with Bogie among the select few who qualified for the final Australian team.
Other local archers competing at the championships include Fenny and Jock Thompson and Alyssa and John Mollema.
