Borders Archer Inducted to Scottish Archery’s Hall of Fame

Kate Murray

Double Paralympian Kate Murray from Bonchester Bridge in the Scottish Borders has been inducted into the Scottish Archery Hall of Fame. Kate first tried Archery after a friend bought her a training session as a Christmas present. She enjoys the inclusive nature of the competition, often competing alongside non-disabled archers and she has now been competing for over nine years. She trains with Eastcote House and Border Bowmen and also sits on the committee of the Scottish Borders Disability Sport Group. Kate’s greatest achievement to date was winning bronze at the 2007 World Championships in Cheongju, Korea.

At London 2012, Kate finished in the top 10 of the women’s Individual Recurve (W1/W2) and placed 7th in the Team event.

Kate celebrated her 64th birthday on the opening day of competition at London 2012 and was the oldest member of ParalympicsGB.

Kate is joined on the Hall of Fame – launched in 2014 – by fellow Paralympians Jim Buchanan, John Murray and Sandy Gregory.
