OLYMPIC archer Naomi Folkard has topped off another superb year shooting by finishing top of the UK target rankings for the fourth consecutive year.

The rankings, which are produced annually, are based on best scores during the outdoor season.

Folkard secure 5329 points, well ahead of all her arrivals, and put 20 points on her total of 2013.

Fellow Olympian Amy Oliver (Dearne Valley) was second with 5254 and Jeanetta Braun (Brent Valley) was third with 5167.

Folkard first topped the UK rankings at the age of 16 in 2000, and except for a break in 2003, when she was unable to compete, she has held on to the number one position.

Folkard is set to appear in the GB Indoor Championships later this year at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.
