CARL ‘THE CHAD’ RICHARDS

Carl ‘The Chad’ Richards

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
Supreme Edition Bloodline 99 32 strand

Chad has been shooting with Reign since the very beginning and is now in his fourth year on the pro team. The 2015 British Target Champion is no stranger to the podium, with 2018 Veronica's Cup team silver, numerous podiums on the national series stages and finals appearances in 2016 and 2017 under his belt.

His laid-back nature makes him a tough competitor in pressure situations, and in the 2016 Kings of Archery Lucky Dog 'Joker Round' he won on a 140 way shoot off, finishing 6th that year.

DEJAN SITAR

Dejan Sitar

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:

The World Field Championships 2018 marked his 30th appearance at a World Championships and neither of us can count how many international tournaments he has done. Still one of the most formidable archers in the world, Dejan finished 2nd at the World Indoor Cup stage in Nimes 2017.

Three years ago, Dejan asked if he could shoot with Reign – we thought long and hard on that one!

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
BCY X-99 28 strand

The Italian teen sensation has been shooting compound since 2015, making her international debut in 2016. It didn't take long for her to settle into winning ways, winning the gold medal triple (individual, team and mixed team) at the European Youth Cup in Marathon 2017, and winning the overall European youth cup title in the same year.

She followed that up with a win in the junior class at the Nimes World Cup leg, and won silver (individual) and bronze (team) at the World Indoor Championships in 2018. In fact, a total of 18 international medals sit in her trophy cabinet!

Elisa has also won every indoor and outdoor Italian National Cadet title since 2016 – no easy feat given the strength in their team!

ELLA GIBSON

Ella Gibson

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
Supreme Edition Bloodline 99 32 strand

In 3 short years of shooting compound, it's fair to say Ella's had a reasonable start to her career!

The 2018 European Junior team Champion went on a complete onslaught in 2019 amassing 6 World records, 10 European records as both a Junior and Senior and an unimaginable amount of UK records along the way.  She also won Team Silver and Bronze at the Berlin and Antalya World cup stages, Mixed Team Gold in Berlin and Individual Bronze at the World Indoor Cup stage in Luxembourg.

Iulia Petre

DISCIPLINE: Compound
STRING OF choice:
BCY X-99 28 strand

Iulia is the most recent member of the pro team. She made her International debut at the European Youth Cup stage 2 in 2019. Since then she has grown from strength to strength and has had a phenomenal Indoor season, top qualifying at the 2019 Berlin Open in the Senior class with an astonishing PB of 585, narrowly missing out on a spot in the medal matches only by a shoot off. Watch out for this one!!!

JACOB CAINE

Jacob Caine

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
BCY-X (22 strand string, 24 cables)

Jacob Caine joins Reign for his third year on the team. The fearless 16-year old-made his international debut at the European Indoor Championships in 2017, finishing 4th in the team event.

He looked set to continue this success outdoors towards the World Championships until he broke his arm! Sadly, this put him out of international competition in 2017, but after an agonising wait to pick the bow up again, he showed his skills dominating the field at the AGB Youth festival that year winning the final in style with a 146- 144.

2018 finally marked his outdoor international debut at the European Youth Cup where he finished 9th. For 2019, Jacob again looks a decent bet for the World Championships in his last cadet year… if we can keep him in one piece!

JAMES HOWSE

James Howse

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
Supreme Edition Bloodline 99 32 strand

James Howse joins Reign again for his fifth year. James made his debut for the Great British Cadet team in 2014, winning team Bronze that year at the European Youth Championships.

Young and enthusiastic with bags of potential, he made his big jump to the Cadet World’s Elite in 2015 and medalled in all three events at the World Championships; team silver, individual and mixed team bronze. He followed that with team silver at the 2016 and 2017 Europeans. His first Junior year rewarded him his first World Title in the mixed team in Argentina.

James missed the best part of last season to concentrate on his exams, but he's back this year and targeting Madrid, his last Youth World Championships. Given his track record at Major Championships, we wouldn't bet against him!

JODIE GRINHAM

Jodie Grinham

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
BCY X-99 28 strand

Jodie has been shooting with Reign for four years now and has been a member of the team for two. The Paralympic world number eight is a regular on the podium of World Ranking events, but one of her major career highlights came in 2016 when she won silver in the mixed team event at the Rio Paralympic Games.

Last year, Jodie finished a fantastic season with a 4th and two 6th place individual finishes at the European Para-Archery cup stages one and two, and the European Para Championships respectively. Domestically, Jodie also qualified for the National Tour Finals, finishing 4th and 7th in the UK Rankings.

KSENIA MARKITANTOVA

Ksenia Markitantova

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
Brownell Fury 28 strand

Ksenia has been shooting since 2011, and it didn't take long for her to cement her place on the Ukrainian Paralympic team with two Paralympic games under her belt (London 2012 and Rio 2016).

She's been active on the International Para circuit since the start, winning individual silver and team bronze at the world ranking tournament in 2016, where she won the quota tournament. She is also the three-time Ukrainian National Champion.

Lizzie Warner

Discipline: RECURVE
String of choice:
BCY 8125 18 strand

Lizzie Warner, quite possibly one of the most infectiously cheerful women on planet Earth! I've known Lizzie for about 10 years and I swear if she could shoot with a beaming grin, she would.
But deep beneath the sweetness and smiles is a fearless competitor, ruthless in her pursuit of excellence.
Even from a young age, Lizzie dominated the Junior domestic scene winning 5 straight National titles for her age group, as well as European Indoor Junior team Bronze and last year Silver at the European Junior Outdoor Championships.
As she transitioned to British Senior, Lizzie continued this success, winning the British Indoor title in 2016, Bronze Indoor in 2017, Bronze Outdoor in 2018 and Silver in December last year.
A tremendous advocate for our company, it's a pleasure to continue to support her.

LUCY O’SULLIVAN

Lucy O’Sullivan

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
BCY X-99 (32 strand string, 28 cables)

Jersey girl Lucy has clocked up some air miles over her 19 years in archery, travelling to the mainland and around the globe shooting. She first made the GB team in 2005 at the Europa Cup in Czech, and started her international career with an individual silver and team bronze.

The following year, at the age of 15, she made her senior debut and picked up team silver at the World Cup leg in El Salvador. She also won individual bronze and team silver at the World Youth Championships.

Over the years, Lucy has racked up a massive number of other accolades and podiums, including European team silver in 2014, national series finals titles in 2009 and 2011, silver in 2013 and bronze in 2010 and 2018, and World Cup Team silver in 2017.

Possibly one of the most notable achievements though was last year, when after receiving a crash course in shooting field, she jumped right in at the deep end and entered the Pro Series... and won!

Mariya first started shooting Reign strings in 2015, shortly before winning the World Senior team championships with Ukraine. Countless national and international medals later, including her silver medal at the World Series event in Rome last month, Mariya now competes for Luxembourg and can be seen occasionally wearing a million layers to brave the British summer.

MARTYN COTTERILL

Martyn Cotterill

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
BCY X-99 28 strand

Martyn celebrates his sixth year as part of the Reign team. Martyn started shooting in 2011, predominantly in the bowhunter class for NFAS and EFAA, and was ever present on the podium at the major events between 2013 and 2015, with four EFAA National podiums, a team bronze at the European Bowhunter Championships and 6th Individually.

From 2016, he saw sense and strapped a sight to his bow in a switch to Unlimited class. He continued his success, with a 3DA Unknown distance win and also winning the 2017 Scottish 3D championships and 2018 SFAA Indoor championships.

In 2018 Martyn turned his hand to target and learning new skills, he finished the season with a WA720 tournament best of 685.

NEIL BRIDGEWATER

Neil Bridgewater

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
Supreme Edition Bloodline 99 32 strand

Neil is one of a handful of people on the planet to have competed internationally and medalled in both recurve and compound, and one of an even smaller pot of people to have shot 1300 recurve AND 1400 compound!

The former British number one has won the National Series Finals twice and won silver in 2018.

PATRICK HUSTON

Patrick Huston

Discipline: Recurve
String of Choice:
BCY-X 22 strand, BCY Mercury 32 strand

Patrick Huston is in his fifth year on the Reign pro team. Three-time world champion and 2016 Olympian, Patrick has risen time and time again in standard since being with us as a junior, escalating him to now being one of the top recurve lads on the circuit.

Aside from the above-mentioned world titles, Patrick has dominated the UK scene for the past few years, ranking number one in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and winning the National Series triple in the same years.

His extroverted character and ridiculous scoring power make him one of the most entertaining archers on the circuit.

PIT KLEIN

Pit Klein

Discipline: Recurve
String of Choice:
BCY-X 24 strand/BCY X-99 28 strand

Pit has been shooting with Reign for years, taking our strings across the planet at World Cups, World Championships and formerly youth events. In September, he was one third of the team that made history by winning bronze at the European Outdoor Championships, securing the quota places for the European games in the process. For that we'll forgive him for knocking out GBR in the quarter finals!

In December, Pit came to the UK for the Back to Back tournament for the first time and secured bronze at that event.

SARAH BETTLES

Sarah Bettles

Discipline: RECURVE
String of Choice:
BCY 8125G 18 strand

Sarah was also part of the team that achieved the quota spots for GB in the 2019 European games. She's currently sitting in 9th on the World Indoor Series rankings.

STAŠ MODIC

Staš Modic

Discipline: Compound
String of Choice:
452X 24 strand

20-year-old Staš has been on the Slovenian national team for the past eight years, racking up a pretty impressive set of results. He is regular on the podium at youth events, with a European indoor team title in 2015 and the IFAA World indoor title in the same year being highlights.

As he heads into his full senior career, his impressive scoring power and ability to perform under pressure will surely make him a force in the senior discipline. Staš is in his fifth year on the Reign pro staff.

THEA ROGERS

Thea Rogers

Discipline: Recurve
String of Choice:
Brownell Fastflight 16 strand

Welsh wonder, Thea Rogers, joins us on her third year as part of the Reign pro staff. The 16-year-old started five years ago and it didn't take long for her to start winning at domestic tournaments.

2017 marked her international debut at the European Youth Cup in Croatia, and as part of the Cadet team, she opened her account with a dominant gold medal winning display. She followed this up shortly after with team bronze at the World Youth Championships.

With podium finishes at the Junior and Senior Euronations as part of the Welsh team, Youth Festival individual bronze and Junior National gold in 2018, she shows no signs of slowing down!
