Archery duo are on target Determined success: The junior sportsman of the year was Waitakere motocross rider Ethan Martens. STEVEN NEVILLE/AUCKLAND SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY Champion couple: Michael and Linda Lainchbury from the Massey Archery Club with the Sport Waitakere Koru Supreme Award. By TUREI MACKEY An archery couple from West Harbour have struck double success again after taking the supreme award at the Sport Waitakere Koru Awards. Michael and Linda Lainchbury, who train at Kumeu Showgrounds, are the first joint winners of the supreme award in the event s 14-year history. Both also picked up sportsman and sportswoman of the year. It tops off an amazing 12 months for the pair who each won world titles at the world indoor archery competition in Argentina and the world outdoor archery cham- pionships in Germany. It is a fantastic result for what is seen as a minority sport to win, Michael says. We are very commit- ted to our sport and to each other, so it is nice to be recognised. Michael said he had an inkling that they would win when MC Neil Waka declared two athletes had won the overall award but Linda was still a little unsure. Even then I didn t know we had won, she says. It was only when our sport s name came up on the big screen that I realised we had. It was just unbelievable. Linda says the couple s com- petitive spirit is the reason behind so much success in their chosen discipline. If he thinks I m slightly better then he willstepitupandifheis improving more than me then I will train even harder, she says. We know by doing that we are helping each other and I think that helps in our ultimate goal of winning titles. But Linda had to con- cede defeat in the public speaking arena after Michael delivered an entertaining ad-lib after winning sportsman of the year. He wrecked my speech, she laughs. I had mine all planned and ready in case I won and he got up and gave his off the cuff. Despite their success both were still focused on training and working for their next goal -- the world bowhunter champion- ships in Australia next April. We are self-employed with our own digital printing store, so need to get back to work as well as get back to training. The junior sportsman of the year was Ethan Martens of Waitakere for motocross. His achieve- ments include New Zea- land titles and compet- ing at the worlds. This year he ventured across to Australia by himself to compete in their national Moto X series. Despite a right shoulder injury, he gained a credible 9th overall.
