Norbert Murphy

Norbert Murphy can still remember the feeling of joy when he hit his first target. There was a shooting range next to the track where he trained for wheelchair racing, and he tried archery one day after practice. He has been hooked ever since.

In London, Murphy will be competing in his third Paralympic Games. He also competed at the Sydney 2000 and 2008 2008 Paralympic Games. Murphy captured the bronze medal at the 2009 World Para-Archery Championship and finished fifth at the 2011 World Para-Archery Championship (in the men's Compound Bow, ARW1 category).

In June 2012, Murphy won silver at the prestigious Stoke-Mandeville International Invitational in Stoke-Mandeville, England.
