I am the archer in this picture - (Michael Hennessy), aged 20 years when the photo was taken. This was "staged" as a promotional photo for the poster for the commonwealth games. I was not successful making it to the Austalian archery team for the commonwealth games competition. The archer who is out of shot to left, tip of bow stabilizer visible to the left is Geoff Burnell-Jones who made the archery team for the games.
