Liam first got involved in the sport of archery during his summer holidays where he took part in a training course at age 8.Â Since then he has enjoyed it.Â Liam says that Dave Cousins has had the biggest impact on his career.Â He says, “He has taught me huge amounts about bow set up, shooting form and most importantly the right mental approach to shooting. I owe much of my recent success to him.”Â The biggest piece of advice he has for new archers is, “Find a good coach who you trust and commit yourself to their ideas, always enjoy yourself and remember to take each arrow as it comes!”
“I love the factÂ thatÂ archery is myÂ profession, it has its difficult times but generally Â in life most people can’t say that they love doing their job. I am one of the very few people who is fortunate enough to be able to say this. For me I love competition and the battle which goes on at every tournament and practice session!”
When he is not competing, Liam enjoys working out in the gym, running and twitter.
