Great Britain`s Paralympic archery champion Danielle Brown has won silver as she starts her World Cup career in Tokyo. Brown who is from Lothersdale near Skipton was a late call-up to the tournament after the withdrawal of Olga Bosch. Jamie Van Natta took the main prize.

Brown, a Paralympic gold winner at both Beijing and London became the first female archer with a disability to compete in a non-disabled World Cup Grand Final. She took up the sport at the age of 15 after she was diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
