Olympics: Oliver targets Rio 2016

Rotherham archer Amy Oliver has described her first Olympic experience as "addictive" after being knocked out of London 2012.

The 25-year-old caused the upset of her career after beating World number one Deepika Kumari, before bowing out in the last 16 losing 7-1 to Yuliana Rochmawati of Indonesia.

I’d say at this moment that would probably be my highlight. I’ve won medals before but it was really nice to have the support. I’ve never had that before where there was so many people in the crowd.

I just tried to do everything I could basically. So long as I shot well, I was happy. If I was going to go out there and shoot rubbish shots I’d have been really disappointed.

It's addictive and I want to do it again. Hopefully I'll be back in four years.
