Brian Maxwell

Short Biography:

I picked up archery about 5 years ago. Before that, I was into allot different sports, multiple forms of martial arts, mountain biking, cricket, downhill long boarding, power kiting, and many others. All that gave me a pretty good sense of body awareness. One day in 2014, I was watching an video online of a Gold Medal match from the 2012 London Olympics. It was the Archery Men’s Team event, Italy Vs. USA. I had thought about giving archery a try before, but that exciting match with its nail biting finish is what got me hooked. I jumped into the sport and found myself climbing the national ranking very quickly. In three years time I was ranked 2nd in Canada and gained the attention of the Canadian National Team. Since then, I’ve traveled the world representing Canada on the world stage. I’ve done many sports in the past and each one gave me something, but archery is the one that made me a true athlete.
