2023 BRONZE AWARD

Nuala Edmundson 

Archer

Nuala Edmundson, has emerged as a formidable force in the world of archery with a string of remarkable achievements both internationally and domestically. At the Sol23 17th Pacific Games held in Honiara in November 2023, she made her debut representing New Zealand as an adult competitor, clinching a bronze medal in the ranking and securing a commendable 4th position in the matchplay. Her participation in this multisport event was a testament to her prowess and dedication. Furthermore, she showcased her mettle at the Continental Qualifying Tournament in March 2024, held in Auckland, where her stellar performance earned her a coveted quota place for Paris 2024 after a thrilling one-arrow shoot-off. Despite the spot being awarded to Fiji due to selection criteria constraints, this achievement marked her presence on the Olympic Long List, fueling her aspirations for future competitions such as LA 2028 and Brisbane 2032.

 

Throughout the domestic archery season, Nuala continued to excel, surpassing personal milestones and setting new records. Notably, she enhanced her personal best by an impressive 15 points and demonstrated her proficiency by shooting a remarkable 90m1440 round, a feat that is poised to earn her additional New Zealand records pending ANZ approval. Her dedication and talent were further underscored by her breaking of the NZ U21WR 70m distance record during a 70m 1440 round in January. Beyond her achievements on the field, Nuala's contributions were recognized off the field as well, as evidenced by her receipt of the University of Auckland Blues award for her exceptional accomplishments across sports and academia in 2023. With her sights set on continual improvement and future endeavours, Nuala remains a shining example of excellence in the world of archery.
