Liam first got involved in the sport of archery during his summer holidays where he took part in a training course at age 8.¬† Since then he has enjoyed it.¬† Liam says that Dave Cousins has had the biggest impact on his career.¬† 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.”¬† 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 fact¬†that¬†archery is my¬†profession, it has its difficult times but generally ¬†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.
