Brandon Xuereb

Short Biography:

I began archery in 2007 after watching Lord Of The Rings. I began to compete in 2011 at local and provincial events, but didn’t make my international debut until 2015, where I represented Canada at the Youth World Championships. While very difficult, that competition helped shape my urge to better myself in my training regimen, and improve my overall performance in competition. Today, I train for Paris 2024, as well as multiple local, national, and international tournaments. I strive to improve myself bit by bit every step along the way. Besides archery, I graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto, specializing in psychology. I aspire to complete my Master’s in the next few years. I also work at Canada Archery Online as a technician and retail consultant, helping new and experienced archers get set up with their archery equipment.

Biggest Accomplishment:

Being part of the team to fight for the final Olympic quota spot for the Rio Olympics. Although we didn’t qualify, it taught me a lot about my goals and my passion for this sport.
