Alec Potts

Alec Potts made history at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games as a part of Australia’s first ever medal winning archery team. Competing at his debut Olympic Games at just 20-years-of-age, Potts won bronze with teammates Ryan Tyack and Taylor Worth at Rio’s famous Sambodromo.

The trio moved straight through to the quarter-finals of the 12 team competition after finishing fourth in the ranking round with a score of 2005. After defeating France they took on tournament favourites South Korea in the semi-finals. Despite shooting superbly Potts and his teammates went down to set up a shot at bronze against China. The Aussies held their nerve to defeat the Chinese Team and win the bronze medal.

Potts scored the 20th highest ranking round score with 666 to see him take on Brazilian Bernardo Oliveira. The match came down to the last arrow as Potts bowed out in the first round.
