KIERAN Slater helped the Great Britain recurve team that won a bronze medal at the World University Games in Legnica, Poland.

Stinchcombe-based archer Slater, who is a Bowmen of Minchinhampton member, teamed up with Ashe Morgan and George Harding to beat top seeds Korea in a shoot-off to secure third place.
