Winnette Lawrence

My name is Winnette Lawrence ,48 yrs old Guyanese by birth , living in the British Virgin Islands and started archery in the ending part of 2015, shooting compound .

I start doing it out of boredom and after a few months fell in love with it. In 2016. I start competing for the British Virgin Island at the Caribbean Development Championship held in Puerto Rico and got a silver medal in the women’s open compound category, from there I start shooting for world ranking qualifiers.

At the moment I’m at number 195 in the world women compound open. I hope one day to be on the world archery podium as the first Caribbean women on the podium. My main problem is practice because of my job situation.

My tip to other archers if you love it try and make the best of it, practice as much as you can and aim for the X until you reach your achievement.
