Paralympic medal targeted by West Lothian archer
A talented West Lothian archer is aiming for medal success at the Tokyo 2021 Paralympic games.
Addiewell-based Nathan MacQueen is currently at a preparation camp in Tokyo, and is looking forward to heading into the athletes' village tomorrow.
He has previously represented Team GB at the 2016 Paralympics, two world championships and two European championships along with a host of other events along the way.
Nathan is currently ranked 4th in the world in the para category and has a British able-bodied ranking of 7th and a Scottish able-bodied ranking of 2nd.
Talking about his goals for Tokyo 2021, Nathan said: "My main objective for the year is to arrive for the games in the best physical and mental condition possible, to put me in position to score well and win that coveted Paralympic medal."
Councillor Cathy Muldoon, vice-chair of the Culture and Leisure Policy Development and Scrutiny Panel (PDSP) said: "I'm sure all of West Lothian will join me in cheering on Nathan when the archery contest begins on Friday 27 August.
"It's a fantastic achievement to represent Team GB at the Paralympic Games, and is down the hard work and dedication shown by Nathan in his chosen sport.
"We wish him every success at the games, and hope he can bring a coveted medal home to West Lothian."
