WW Gunter Bursary

Liam Bennett is the 2023 recipient of the WW Gunter Memorial Bursary

The Canadian Archery Foundation is excited to announce that this year’s recipient of the WW Gunter Memorial Bursary is Liam Bennett of Prince George, BC.

Liam Bennett began his involvement with archery first as a barebow archer and then moving to a recurve bow for the last seven years. He has loved archery since the very day of classes with his volunteer coaches, and has grown to love this sport.

While his home club, Silvertip Archers, is primarily a recreational club, Liam has attended TOP camps and other similar clinics in the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, as well as the selection camp for the Youth and Masters Pan Am Championships. His performance at the camp was enough to secure a spot on the Canadian team at the international competition this past June in Halifax.

He is currently in the Next Gen program, following the leadership of Soha Mahmoud, Junior Recurve Coach. In the upcoming fall, Liam is attending the University of Calgary where he will study mechanical engineering.
