Adi Shapira (Vancouver) stated from the outset of the Canada Winter Games that she wanted a top three finish, on Thursday she took the silver medal.
"It is an amazing reward for all the training I have been doing and it is just an amazing accomplishment," said Shapira who won silver in the archery recurve - individual female event.
She lost in the gold medal elimination round 6-4 to Marie-Eve Gélinas (Quebec).
Adam Deane took bronze in the individual recurve, bouncing back in what he called "one of the worst performances" he has had in about five months.
"Today really brought my confidence back and I feel really good. I cleared my head today and had no expectations. My goals going into the Games was come in fourth place. Things kept going and in match play I was a completely different person. I didn't have a score in mind that I wanted. I just shot my arrows, aimed for the middle and hoped for the best," said Deane.
In the bronze elimination round Deane defeated Reece Wilson-Poyton (Ontario) 6-2.
Deane said getting a medal has made his Games experience complete.
"It feels so good. Standing up on the podium was super, super surreal."
Shapira and Deane are both looking forward to the team event tomorrow.
"I think I am going to approach it a lot more confidently and I now know what other athletes can do so it won't be as much of a surprise. I am confident in what we can do together and I think we will be in the top three," said Shapira.
