Families of Team GB archers recently gathered at Warwick Castle to show support for those competing in the Olympics.

To mark the start of the individual archery events at the Tokyo Olympics last week, the friends and families of the Team GB Olympics archers gathered at the castle to show their support and express their pride in the athletes’ Olympic journeys.

Four of the six archers who competed in Tokyo for Great Britain have strong Midlands connections, including Tom Hall and Patrick Huston, whose friends and family were at the castle.
