Taylor Worth made his breakthrough on the national and international scene in 2010 when he was part of the Australian Team that won gold in the team event at the Delhi Commonwealth Games. He went on to win the National Championship, a gold medal at the US Open, and was crowned Australian Archer of the Year.
Worth secured Olympic selection when he won four rounds- including one against countryman Sky Kim and another against world number one Brady Ellison- to finish sixth overall at the Olympic qualifying tournament in Utah.
Competing at the iconic Lords Cricket Ground at the 2012 London Olympic Games, Worth provided one of the upsets of the archery tournament when he knocked off Ellison again. Another thriller followed when Worth was agonisingly defeated in a shoot-off 9-8 to China’s Xiaoxiang Dai and just missed out on the quarter-finals.
