Archery’s ace Ella Gibson secures spot for The World Games 2025

In a remarkable display of skill and determination, British compound archer Ella Gibson, 23, has recently qualified for The World Games 2025. This significant achievement came during the 2024 European Archery Championships held in Essen, Germany from 7-12 May 2024.

Gibson, already renowned in Archery circles for her precision and consistency, added another accolade to her growing list by securing her spot in the 12th edition of The World Games to take place in Chengdu (CHN) from 7-17 August 2025. The European Archery Championships served as a critical qualifying event, and Gibson’s performance was nothing short of stellar.

Throughout the Championships, Gibson demonstrated exceptional prowess with her compound bow. Her consistent high scores and calm demeanour under pressure were pivotal in her journey to qualification. Competing against Europe’s elite archers, she showcased not only technical excellence but also the mental fortitude necessary for success at the highest levels of the sport.

The European Archery Championships in Essen attracted top-tier talent, making Gibson’s achievement all the more significant. Her ability to maintain composure and deliver peak performances in such a competitive environment underscores her status as one of the leading figures in compound archery.

Qualifying for The World Games is a testament to Gibson’s dedication and hard work. This multi-sport event, often described as the Olympics for non-Olympic sports, will see the world’s best archers gather in 2025 to compete for top honours. For Gibson, this qualification represents both a personal triumph and a milestone for British archery. She hopes to defend her Birmingham 2022 title, which she claimed by winning gold in the compound event.

As she prepares for The World Games 2025, Ella Gibson will undoubtedly continue to refine her skills and strategy, aiming to bring home a medal and further cement her legacy in the sport.

With her sights now set on The World Games, the archery community will be eagerly watching Ella Gibson’s journey, confident that she will make a significant impact on the world stage.
